Skincare Trends, Mental And Emotional Wellness, Beauty Tips
  • Melanie has spent years researching skincare trends (and interviewed more than a few aestheticians, dermatologists, and other professionals along the way) giving her a wealth of first-hand skincare knowledge.
  • She's never met a beauty trend that she hasn't become obsessed with – currently, those obsessions include '90s throwbacks, modernized French tips, and curtain bangs.
  • When she's not writing, Melanie can usually be found reading (or re-reading) the latest on mental and emotional wellness – but her favorite remains "The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma" by Bessel van der Kolk.

Experience

Melanie got her professional break during an internship at Parker County Today Magazine in Fort Worth, TX. After joining the publication's staff as a writer and reporter, she seized the opportunity to learn the editorial process from top to bottom, eventually being promoted to managing editor. During her time with PCT, Melanie revamped the publication's women's lifestyle section and helped to organize many women-centric charitable events. Melanie later decided to continue her career as a freelance writer and content marketing specialist, enjoying the freedom to focus on topics that she is most passionate about.

Education

Melanie is currently studying content marketing strategy at the University of California, Davis, with plans to pursue a B.A. in journalism. Her hands-on experience, lengthy background in women's lifestyle content, and lifelong beauty obsession make her a uniquely qualified writer for Gliz.
