Buffalo Jill of The Week Melissa B

This week, our Buffalo Jill of The Week isn't your typical rookie. She actually came to the Jills after already performing in the pros, as a member of the 2012 Buffalo Bandettes. She started off her career as a Jill dancing on Emily's line between Jenny and Alyssa K but switched to the Ambassador squad early in the regular season. Melissa B is a dance teacher and choreographer away from the field with the hopes of one day owning her own dance studio. Level-headed and easy-going, she joins a pretty elite group of girls who didn't quit after their 1st tries to make the squad didn't go well. Like captain Lisa, and noted alumni like former captains Keisha and Amanda F and even Amazing Race star Katherine Bichler, Melissa was intent on making the squad and was able to achieve her dream of cheering on an NFL sideline. All too often, people give up on their dreams too easily. One of Melissa's dreams, besides her own studio, is to get her PhD and become a professional dance choreographer, similar to what Paula Abdul did before she started singing. Considering Melissa considers singing and acting among her hidden talents, maybe she'll be following her lead in that area as well. Whatever her future holds though, we know Melissa will leave a great impression on people as that's what she's been doing in the last few years since I first met her as it is. She's the type of person who can put anyone at ease and make them feel pretty important. See all of Melissa's pics at Mel's secondary pic comes from the Bills-Lions preseason game. Coming out for the game early in the 1st quarter are Hayley, Jenny, Melissa B, and Alyssa K.

We can see these ladies performing when the Bandits host the Wings at the Home Opener on December 28th. The Bandits and Bandettes will also be hosting the Wings at an open scrimmage on December 7th at First Niagara Center!
