Melissa went to St Johns D.S.G and then did a B.Soc majoring in Drama, followed by a P.G.C.E. to further become a Drama teacher. Melissa started teaching for Helen O'Grady in 2011 as a student helping Claire with bigger classes. She has been teaching full time for the past three years and has been promoted to deputy principal with the aim of taking over The Helen O'Grady Drama Academy in Pitermaritzburg when Claire retires in 2019.
