She herself lives with spinal muscular atrophy, a progressive weakening of the muscles, and has been using an electric wheelchair since childhood. Since her return to gaming in the summer of 2017 after more than 15 years of unintended abstinence, her main focus has been inclusion in field of gaming. She tweets about it under the handle @melly_maeh, blogs occasionally on meilert.net and also appears as a guest author and speaker in other media outlets. In “real life” she is an administrative assistant and works at a support service for people with disabilities.
