Of particular note, she serves on the board of the Minnesota Infinity Project, an organization focused on gender disparity on the bench throughout the Eighth Circuit, and she previously served on the board of the Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association, for which she also served as the co-chair of the Judicial Endorsements Committee. In 2019, Melissa was appointed by Governor Walz and Lieutenant Governor Flanagan to the Commission on Judicial Selection, and she was appointed to the Hispanic National Bar Association Latina Commission. At Maslon, she serves as a member of Maslon's Diversity Committee and co-chair of Maslon's Diverse Attorney Resource Group.
