Melissa joined the team of Pettis Webber Pacific PS in 2020. Originally from Minnesota, she moved to Alaska in 1989, where she lived until she moved to Washington. She has her degree in Legal Secretary studies and many years of experience working in the legal field for both attorneys and in the insurance industry. She enjoys assisting people who find themselves in situations in life they never expected, and being part of a team that supports them by providing excellent legal advice and defense while leading them through the legal maze.
