We are currently in week 4 of the Natures Garden staff member challenge. Everyone is excitedly working on their creative projects at Natures Garden and they are having a blast creating them. For the challenge, each staff member has to come up with their own recipe using Natures Garden supplies. The project has to be made with one of their favorite Natures Garden fragrance oils, and they are encouraged to be as creative as possible. Melissa was the fourth staff member to partake in the challenge, and her recipe is what she calls: Fresh Fallen Leaves Soap.
Melissa has been a customer service representative for Natures Garden for years. She is quite possibly one of the happiest and outgoing people around. She is bursting with positivity and cheerfulness, and she is always willing to help. Melissa loves people, especially those that are different than her. Melissa says she likes to see things from others’ perspective. It opens her eyes to new experiences she might have missed out on.
As for her other loves, Melissa loves shopping and finding good deals! Her first addiction is zebra, as well as zebra print, although she admits some call her love for zebra an obsession. This is followed closely by her love of shoes. This girly girl is currently sitting on 150 (yes that is 150) different pairs of shoes! Melissa’s third addiction is coffee.
In her spare time, Melissa loves to ski. She has been skiing her whole life. She also has a passion for singing. Melissa openly admits that she can not sing well, but radiantly says, “if I turn the radio up loud enough, no one know the difference.” Going hand in hand, another thing that Melissa loves to do is dance in the rain. She has even been known to dance in the rain in the parking lot outside of Natures Garden.
Melissa’s inspiration for her spotlight creation project was her love of autumn. Besides loving the bold and beautiful colors of a northeastern fall, she adores dressing up for Halloween.
Melissa’s motto for life is: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain.
