My name is Melissa Sharp.
“and nobody will ever call her Mel” my mother said in the hospital that day.
But it happened anyway.
I was raised in Vancouver BC, a happy middle child. I consider myself extraordinarily lucky, for many aspects of my life.
I love the stars on a clear night, the feeling of exhausted muscles after a hard workout, and spending time in the mountains and on the water. I love coffee and really adore wine. Really.
I thrive on quiet evenings and fast descents. Mountain bike or snowboard, it doesn’t matter which. I love racing and and thrill of competition. I can’t whistle to save my life. Oh, and I really love a good challenge. I guess I got what I asked for.
I’m all determination on my journey back to wellness. I have always been fascinated with making the impossible come true. For that, I’m starting with myself, and there is no mountain I can’t climb.
Especially if there’s wine at the top.
