Melissa is a school teacher turned calligrapher Who specializes in custom hand-lettered calligraphy pieces for weddings, events, home decor and businesses who specializes in signage. She lives in SW Florida with her husband and two children on their 10 acre farm. Her love of calligraphy began when she took a year off of teaching in 2015 to raise her first baby and took an online modern calligraphy class. She soon found out how addictive and useful her new talents were and quickly began utilizing them more often then she thought possible. And that’s when she started her company Flourish Calligraphy. After several years in the wedding industry she is so excited to combine her two careers into one and begin teaching calligraphy classes with Sip & Script. When she is not teaching, she is usually busy feeding her animals and children and enjoys boating and golfing with her family.
