Melina Matsoukas

Hi, my name is Melina Matsoukas, and I am new to the Insight team.


I was born and raised in central Pennsylvania and graduated from Penn State in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music with Voice as my principal instrument. During my time in college, I was heavily involved in the performing arts and participated in a wide variety of ensembles, ranging from classical to contemporary. I have had the opportunity to work with composers directly and premiere new music. I even sang backup vocals for our faculty-run Beatles cover band!


Following graduation, I relocated to the Bay Area. My time in college instilled in me a love for higher education, and it was this passion that ultimately led me to Insight. I’m excited to be a part of a team that helps students achieve their dreams and academic goals.


I have a love for all things creative! In my free time, I enjoy writing, drawing, and of course, practicing.
