We're excited to introduce this member of the Cusa Crew and someone who we find incredibly inspiring. Melissa describes herself as 'a positive, solar-powered outdoorist enjoying the wonders of the Rockies.' (Here she is on top of Torrey's Peak).
She's also a sustainability expert who's spent years helping others, from consulting for an English education startup in Cambodia to developing an entrepreneurship platform for youth at Girls Incorporated.
PLUS, she was on American Ninja Warrior in 2015! If that's not incredible, we don't know what is. We asked Melissa about her experience with Cusa, and this is what she had to say:
What is your favorite Cusa flavor?
How do you use Cusa? (at home, on-the-go, camping, etc)
I daily mix up an iced Jasmine Green Tea or Mango Green Tea. I add some lemon, as well! It is a nice way to capture energy and focus for work. I [also] bring Cusa camping for a nice warm Chai tea in the mornings!
What do sustainability and wellness mean to you?
Sustainability and wellness is a lifestyle for me, and I believe it must be an intentional practice in order to live holistically and well balanced amongst our fellow people.
What would be your theme song?

What do you do for work, and how did you get where you are?

What is your favorite TV show you've watched this year?
I finally watched Mad Men!
How long would you last in a zombie apocalypse?
I was a sprinter in college, so I suppose I would just tap into those fast-twitch muscles again and....RUN
