Born in Fort Walton, FL, Melinda moved to the northwest right before going into junior high school. With the desire to take her passion for acting to the next level, she studied at Freehold Theatre Studio in Seattle. From there she started to pursue it professionally. Feeling that media is a great way to reach the masses and effect the soul, heart and mind of people, she knew she wanted to take on projects that enhance society. Currently she’s been able to tie in her skills as a actor and producer while working on a project that touches humanity and hopefully bring us closer together by broaden our minds and looking at the possibilities of what if. She wanted to get more involved in projects that speak to my interest, so started producing on shorts films and a documentary while at the same time being involved with the Seattle Latino Film Festival as their Media and Events Director. She feels very fortunate to be involved in an industry where through powerful storytelling it can touch the emotions the audiences.
