I hired Melissa to handle the marketing needs of the DoubleTree and Marriott Del Mar, including their on-site restaurants. She was new to the hospitality industry, but adapted quickly and continued to impress and go above and beyond what was asked of her. On top of managing and growing the social media presence of both hotels and restaurants, Melissa also handled reputation management, web development, media relations, and more. She is a talented graphic designer and created various marketing materials and on-property assets for all departments. She accepts all tasks with a positive attitude, finishes her work with a quick turnaround, and is always happy to help out whenever needed. Melissa quickly became an essential addition to our properties and would be a great asset to any organization.

John Peart, General Manager

We hired Melissa to improve the social presence of the Marriott and DoubleTree Del Mar hotels. Upon joining the team, Melissa completed a comprehensive analysis of our social channels and those of our compset. She outlined a strategy and quickly adapted her role into much more of a Marketing Manager position. She handled everything from social media, collateral and promotion creation, website updates, email marketing and internal communications. Melissa has been an asset to the hotels and great support of the sales team.

Patrick McTigue, Director of Sales/Marketing

Melissa served as the Social Media Manager at ACI. She is outstanding as a social media expert and overall, a great employee. She is self-motivated, highly creative, has a super attitude and always works well with others. I would recommend Melissa unconditionally!

Dr. Ann Clark, Founder and CEO

Melissa is hands-down the most exceptional social media expert I’ve ever worked with. Her diligent planning, and always-on work mentality speaks directly to her ability to anticipate new trends, and build relevant and effective strategies for the business. I frequently seek out Melissa for advice on how to best approach my own work, as she has become an expert on both messaging, and the company brand. I don’t think I’ve ever had a single negative interaction with Melissa – she works hard and consistently achieves very timely results. I can’t recommend her more.

Trevor Brown, Video Producer

Bright, capable, resourceful. Melissa possesses all the best qualities of her generation. From day one she had a plan and got to work on our social strategy. She was quick to pick up our corporate voice and immediately became a trusted member of the team. Melissa has since taken on other various marketing responsibilities while maintaining and growing our social presence. Despite our best efforts to bog her down with tedious tasks, she completes everything with swift precision. Melissa picks up new skills and ideas with ease and charm, and doesn’t display a hint of condescension when teaching us old-timers a thing or two about social media. Can’t imagine our department without her.

Aaron Grisafi, Art Director and Graphic Designer

In one word, Melissa is fast. Her initiative is one of her greatest strengths. Before I even ask, “Melissa, can you…” the response is, “it’s already done.” Time and time again, she goes above and beyond, plans ahead, is highly organized, and can always be counted on to get the job done. She managed multiple social media accounts, for multiple company affiliations, with strong built-out calendars and tons of daily flexibility in handling new and urgent needs. Her creativity is infectious, and she brings tons of fun, new, unique ideas for any marketing brainstorm or project. Melissa is an absolute joy to work with, and she has a great sense of humor that brightens up the entire team.

Laura McDermott, Content Director

Melissa is an incredible team player, hard worker and asset to any project she works on. As her manager for two years, Melissa was an ideal employee. I could always count on her to get the job done, and to do it well. She is organized, efficient and proactive about completing tasks, taking on new challenges and helping out wherever she can. She is a social media expert, as well as a skilled content and digital marketer. In addition to her strong work ethic and professionalism, Melissa has a great sense of humor and brings a lot of light and laughter to her job every day. I cannot recommend Melissa highly enough as a person and as an employee.

Erin Philips, Marketing Manager

Melissa works on my team at ACI as our Social Media Manager. From the time I hired Melissa, I have been impressed by her professionalism and knowledge of social media. Melissa’s work ethic is far beyond her peers. Her attention to detail and social strategies have definitely had a direct effect on ACI’s digital marketing initiatives. She is a pleasure to work with and I’d be happy to recommend her.

Tim Mutrie, SVP of Marketing/IT

Melissa is an incredibly sharp, smart and capable social media manager. She is a hard worker who goes above and beyond her job description and is happy to collaborate on projects. Melissa is always up on the latest trends and can pick up skills very quickly. I love having her on our marketing team – she is a real asset and an awesome resource!

Kira Sjoberg, Marketing and Design Specialist

I had the pleasure of working with Melissa during her Fall semester internship with Internet Marketing Inc. As a Content Marketing and Social Media intern, the scope of work that was put before Melissa was no small task but she is extremely hard working and always completed her work on time and to the highest degree of quality. One of Melissa’s best qualities is her ambition and eagerness to learn. It was evident that to Melissa, the internship wasn’t simply just another class and way to earn credit but rather a learning experience that she was determined to get the most out of. I would recommend Melissa to any company looking to add an eager, hardworking, talented and professional new member to their team. She will likely surpass your expectations by delivering above and beyond what is asked of her.
