After an honorable discharge from the military, Melissa worked as a child and adolescent therapist in both a residential hospital and in a private practice setting. Melissa has also worked as an adjunct professor of psychology at Wallace Community College in Dothan, Ala., where she taught courses in general psychology, human growth and development, and statistics.

While conducting research for the U.S. Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory (USAARL), Melissa also obtained a second master's degree in criminal justice and became a published author.
