Melissa worked with me in the final six months of operation at Waldorf Astoria New York. I really couldn’t believe how sharp, professional, experienced and committed she was on this project. I worked with dozens (if not hundreds) of young professionals in my role over the years, but Melissa was one of those rare finds who has the “old soul” of a hospitality professional, but with the skills and savvy of a new world star.
Creative ideas and impactful business results — this is what Melissa has brought to our business Explorest. Her strong work ethic, responsiveness, and can-do attitude is the exact type of person we seek to work with — and it’s a very hard combination to find. She’s made a lasting impact on our social media strategies and brand authority that is continuing to pay dividends today. We will always welcome the opportunity to work with Melissa!
When I hired Melissa to lead top-tier client accounts at our agency, I knew I made the right choice. Her hospitality operations and PR background gave her the unique ability to align client needs with real-time media opportunities. Collaborative, insightful, and strategic, she is a dedicated client partner who leans in on projects where fresh ideas are needed to drive results.
Melissa has a keen eye for detail and a deep understanding of media strategy. She is always up-to-date on the latest trends and technologies, and she has a talent for crafting campaigns and pitches that resonate with our target audience. Melissa is a natural problem solver, and she consistently delivers innovative solutions that exceed our expectations. She takes the time to understand our goals and objectives, and she is always open to feedback and suggestions. This collaborative approach has helped us to create some truly outstanding campaigns and land coverage across a wide-spectrum of top-tier media outlets.
Hiring Melissa for our children’s media company has been one of the best decisions we’ve made. Her experience in the travel and hospitality industries made her the ideal candidate to advocate on our behalf with established brands and media outlets. Melissa is a consummate professional, innovative, creative and dependable. Her work with us demonstrates that she is respected in her field and committed to her clients’ success. She is not afraid to think outside of the box, go after opportunities no matter how aspirational they may seem, and take initiative with new ideas on how to maximize her clients’ exposure in a positive way. I look forward to our continued work together.
