Melissa Field

Biography

Melissa was born and raised in the central valley of California. Although she has lived and traveled many places, this corner of the world will always inspire her. It's a place where commerce and farm life co-mingle in a unique mix of modern and natural. Her home city of Modesto contains a quarter million residents, but a quick bike ride will take you outside the city and past orchards of peaches and fields full of dairy cows. Amongst the places she has lived, Antarctica and Holland were the most interesting and life-changing. She's grateful to have lived in such varied places and always on the look out for the next opportunity, the next place full of quirky people and soul expanding experiences.
