Buffalo Jill of The Week Melissa M

This week, we look at 3rd year vet Melissa as our Buffalo Jill of The Week. Now the longest tenured-Jill on the squad, she's actually already put in 10 years in the pro ranks, with 7 seasons as a Bandette before transitioning to the Jills in 2011. As Christina's co-captain last season dancing between Hannah and Shelby H, she was to become a captain for the 2014 season. A country girl at heart, Melissa is most happy when she's performing or spending time with her husband, a guy whose sense of humor is sure to keep their marriage happy and long-lasting. Working in PR and communications, she's a gifted writer after graduating with honors with her Communications degree. She even shared some of her writing skills in her Bandettes days when some of her squadmates got named NLL Girl of The Week by writing about them. As far as contributions to the Jills, if you saw the Western gear that the squad wore for a few performances last season, I think it's safe to say we can thank Melissa for that. The flannel shirts-daisy dukes outfit has been a common thing at Bandits games with the Bandettes a few times a season and given Melissa's history with that squad, she had to have had some part of bringing that over. You can see all of Melissa's pics, including from her Bandettes days, at Melissa's secondary photo is from the Ravens game and taken at the end of the 1st quarter. Shown passing by the tunnel are Melissa, Hannah, and Christina.

From the Bandettes, we feature a photo taken at the Bandits Opener against the Philadelphia Wings. Prior to the game, Kirsten's line was greeting fans at the top of the east bank of escalators. Shown posing for a photo are Mandy, Chrissy, Stephanie, Kirsten, Brianna, Danielle, and Lauren K.
