Island Girl Since:

Melody has always been one who enjoys the finer things in life – mani/pedis, drinking tap water, dryers, NOT being eaten alive by possibly Zika-infested mosquitoes, and actually doing her hair. But recently, Melody has said goodbye to all of those luxuries and moved herself, her husband, and her 2 year old son to a Caribbean gem called Dominica to fulfill her husband’s lifelong dream of becoming a doctor.
