Working with Melissa is a true joy. More than a coworker, she is a partner-in-thinking, one whose imagination and problem-solving skills are exceeded only by her ability to get an inhuman amount of work done in the blink of an eye. Melissa is smart, thoughtful, and reliable, and she is a true asset to our team.

Brian Rumble, Creative Director

Melissa is an essential part of our Communications team and in the short time she has been with the company, has been able to demonstrate that she is organized, driven, quick, and efficient. In her time here, she has been able to significantly grow our social media following and continues to help make improvements to the VEBA Resource Center website. In her short time here, I have seen Melissa grow into a leader amongst her peers and I am confident in her abilities to continue to grow more with time.

Chelsy Clark, Senior Director of Brand Development

Melissa has performed social media contract services for my company since the summer of 2020. During her time working with me, Melissa has proved herself to be an invaluable asset. She has an extremely high level of competency in the field of social media PR and marketing. Melissa’s strengths lie in the fact that she is extremely self motivated and will often go above and beyond the required minimums of a task assigned to perform it to the best of her ability and for the best benefit of her company or client. She also has a fantastic sense of knowing what needs to be done without asking for step-by-step instruction. She possesses excellent written and verbal communication skills and can be completely trusted to communicate effectively to any client’s audience. Melissa also shows excellent moral and professional behavior and is well liked and respected by colleagues, employees, vendors, and customers alike. Her presence, both as a person and as an exemplary worker, will be missed here should she eventually end her working relationship with my company. Based on my experience working with her, I can only give Melissa Artobello my highest recommendation for any contract or position she may be considered for.

Travis Harrup, CEO

I would highly recommend Melissa. She has been managing our social media presence for a while now and I don’t think I have worked with anyone so thorough and on the ball! Melissa has a wonderful eye for design and detail. She is very easy to work with and provides detailed reports of each month’s highlights and stats. All of our content has to be approved by our corporate marketing department and Melissa has done a great job coordinating with them. I really appreciate how she checks in periodically to share ideas and ask my opinion on content. If you are looking for someone who does excellent work and can seamlessly manage your social media accounts, Melissa is that person!

Robert Gibb, Insurance Agent

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.
