Hello! My name is Melissa and I live in San Jose, CA. I'm a Bay Area native, nonprofit fundraising professional, and avid runner, hiker, backpacker. I'm also an active, dedicated volunteer with a nonprofit, Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley. With GOTR, I serve as a Coach and as Co-President of the Young Professionals Board. Running is my primary sport. In 2009, I completed my first half marathon...since then, I have completed 86 half marathons and 8 full marathons. My goal for when racing returns is to complete my 100th lifetime half marathon.
