Melina Vissat

Board Member, Communications Committee Chair

Melina Vissat works in marketing and communications for a global engineering firm, where she heads up PR and media relations. A native of the East Coast, she headed West in 2012 to seek out the pow pow and shred the dirt gnar. She’s active in the local mountain biking community; as a member of WMBA, she races with the race team and volunteers as Ride Guide in the summers. She is also a VIDA Ambassador for 2021.

Melina began mountain biking in 2016 and spent the first year struggling to master the concept of keeping the rubber side down. After thousands of miles, several flesh wounds and a couple of bike upgrades, she’s pretty firmly hooked. When not on a bike, she can be found reading, skiing, hiking and doing far too many DIY home renovations.
