Hi, I’m Melissa! After growing up in DC, I spent 20 years living, working, exploring and raising a family in LA. I lived in various parts of the city during that time and married a Lakers- and Dodgers-obsessed local. Together we have two kids who know to chant “GKG” even when we’re spectators in our new home arena in Ohio.

In addition to my writing here at Los Angeles Traveler, you’ll find global travel inspiration at The Family Voyage. I also write about traveling with car seats at Travel Car Seat Mom.
