Graver's biography reads: Melissa's interest in acting started at a young age, although it wasn't in front of the camera, it was behind the scenes helping in school productions; at the time she was too shy to be on stage. In high school she joined PACE (a performing arts program), but acting was still more of a hobby. It wasn't until seeing Spring Awakening on Broadway and being so deeply moved by the talent, that she realized she wanted to pursue acting professionally; which prompted Melissa to take her first acting class and the rest is history. After graduating college with a degree in Psychology and a Theater minor from the University of New Hampshire, she got accepted to the prestigious William Esper Studio in NYC where she completed a Two-year Meisner program in acting. She's also studied improv at Upright Citizen's Brigade and The Groundlings. Melissa got her first role in the indie film, The Winning Season, joined SAG, and moved to LA where she's been doing commercials, TV, film, theater, voice-overs, and web-series galore ever since. Melissa's love of acting naturally transitioned to a love of writing and filmmaking. She wrote, produced, and acted in her first short film, Code Name: Tuffin that got accepted to festivals AND coincidentally was her first team-up with Sarah. You can also see Melissa in the comedy feature, Why Him opposite Bryan Cranston and Megan Mullally. Melissa is the co-creator, co-writer and co-lead of The Pet Peeve Police and most recently she's once again lent her voice to Earbud Theater's After The Haunting.
