We were told to take a look at this beautiful athlete and we were sure happy we did. Melissa is a midfielder for the Houston Dash of the National Women’s Soccer League, but before that she majored in psychology at The University of Notre Dame.
During her junior year she was nominated for an ESPY award, her second ESPY nomination (she was nominated in high school too). At the time of her graduation she was ranked in the top ten in Notre Dame history in eight statistical categories; one of which was hat tricks. That is more than enough for us to name Melissa the Woman of the Week! Be sure to follow her on Instagram!
