Originally from Texas, Melissa moved to Denver in 2009 to attend the University of Denver. She grew up vacationing in Colorado and skiing in Vail and she developed a lifelong deep love for both Denver and Colorado. While attending DU, Melissa received her undergraduate degrees in psychology and biology and went on to receive a Masters in counseling psychology - skills which translate very closely to residential real estate. Prior to joining the Holland Team, Melissa worked in private practice as a child psychologist, so she already has several years of real estate experience. Her Texas family has strong ties to the real estate industry, her father is one of the top commercial brokers in Dallas, and her brother is also a licensed broker in Texas. Melissa is very passionate about real estate and loves connecting with and helping guide people through the real estate transaction.
