Misty grew up in the Latrobe Valley, Victoria and moved to Northern NSW 1995 where she began working as an office junior in an accounting firm. After her first son was born, she began part-time work for Mayberry Meldrum and Anderson where she stayed for over 10 years (although had some time off to have her second son). Whilst working at Mayberry Meldrum and Anderson in 2012, she decided it was time to go back to study and completed a Bachelor of Business, majoring in Accounting.

Misty recently started working back at Mayberry Meldrum and Anderson in an accounting position. Activities she enjoys are Netball, reading, cooking and watching the Bombers play AFL.
