She grew up in Great Falls, Montana and graduated from Marquette University. After internships in Milwaukee and Washington, DC, Melissa began her reporting career at KNDU-TV in Kennewick. She’s completed broadcast and leadership training through the Poynter Institute, National Association of Broadcasters and the Carole Kneeland Project for Responsible TV Journalism. She represents the Northwest on the board of the Radio Television Digital News Association. She also serves on the board of Spokane-based non-profit Project Beauty Share, which provides hygiene and beauty products to non-profit organizations that serve women and families overcoming poverty, abuse and addiction. Melissa is a die-hard Marquette basketball fan, an avid WSU Cougar football fan and a voracious reader. She loves Spokane parks and Washington wine. She’s married to 4 News Now Good Morning Northwest anchor Derek Deis. They have two sons, Dylan and Daniel.
