Love Melanie’s style!

Informative and fun! I love the rapport she builds with her guests and carry’s through to her audience. I feel like not only is she guiding me through explanations of whatever the topic at hand may be but also often helping connect the dots between subjects and interviews. Thank you Melanie!! 💗
