Melissa  Burovac

Melissa Burovac is a wanderer at heart. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, she started college at the University of Alabama on a swimming scholarship, transferred to the University of Northern Colorado, and finally graduated from Ohio State University with a bachelor's degree in horticulture. She now lives in Kauai, Hawaii, where she's worked as a bookkeeper for several years while she tries to find her dream job.

An avid outdoorswoman, Burovac enjoys outrigger paddling-both one-man and six-man-running, surfing, and scuba diving, as well as yoga. She is always up for adventure and loves doing things that scare her a little.
