Between and betwixt

Melina Smith was raised Chapel Hill by two parents very different from her. She attended Duke University, where she muscled through a biomedical engineering degree, wrangled Rhesus monkeys, and helped start a nonprofit¬†Girls Engineering Change, all the while realizing that her passions might lie elsewhere. Soon, she will spread her wings and move to DC for a Master’s at Georgetown. When not baring her soul at The Monti, Melina is most likely on the phone with a friend, lying on the floor of her room, or on the road with her boyfriend. She apologizes to Jeff that her bio may again change in a year.
