Melissa is a designer-turned-marketer who has spent much of her career in the world of technology startups. She has held a variety of roles, from Design Overlord to Director of Experience and brings her experience with branding and design thinking to help She Should Run tell the stories of women who are on their political journeys.
Melissa has been a speaker at HOW Design Live and TEDxPhoenixville, as well as an organizer of Startup Weekend in Philadelphia. She was the founder of Operation NICE, a movement which encouraged individuals to be proactively nice, the creator of a ridiculous meme that was featured on Conan O'Brien, and she hopes one day that her dog, Cheeto, becomes an influencer.
Coming from a very male-dominated industry, she's excited to work with the She Should Run team to help more women discover and cultivate their leadership skills.
