Melissa Campbell is a culture cultivator and localist. She is always out in the community bringing people together.
Melissa graduated from the University at Buffalo with dual bachelor's degree in Fine Art and Psychology. She has been creating and selling her work since she was a child and has a diverse palette of talents. She owned Filigrees Gallery & Boutique on Elmwood Ave. for 6 years until its closing in late 2015. Filigrees featured hundreds of local artists and bands, as well as Melissa's own work and spirituality-related dharma products.
Melissa started hooping in 2010, quickly getting addictied to the flow of the hoop dance and the creative expression it provides. She learned how to make hoops with industrial materials, designed colorful patterns with a variety of tapes and started selling them in her gallery. She brought the hoops to share at parties and community events to learn what people want and need out of the hoop. She is developing workout program that changes the hoop from a kid's toy into an effective fitness tool. The popularity of Ultra Hoops has driven Campbell to focus primarily on the hoop business.
From Melissa:Thanks for taking the time to get to know more about me. Please feel free to call, text or email me so we can start your transformation today!
My technique is similar to that zoomy sound that parents make when they feed children vegetables, gaining all the benefits in an enjoyable, entertaining approach.
I focus on all of the areas of wellness by addressing the physical benefits as well as the mental, emotional and energetic parts of a healthy person.
I owned and operated a gallery and venue for 8 years, hosting concerts, plays, art exhibitions and special events featuring thousands of local and traveling artists.
