Originally from Pittsburgh, moved to Atlanta in 1986. Staffing superhero by day with over 22 years of experience in the staffing industry. Met her husband at the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce Friday networking group where he proposed 4 years later. Serves as an ambassador with the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce and on the board for GUIDE, Inc. (Gwinnett United in Drug Education). Last Christmas, was contacted by her older sister who was adopted. They share the same biological parents and it could not have come at a better time as they both had suffered significant loss in 2018. Melissa's 24 year old daughter passed away, and the remaining adopting parent to her sister also passed. They have had an exciting year getting to know each other. Not only do they look so much alike, but with only a 2.5 year difference in age, they even act just alike.
Melissa served as a volunteer for three years at Cross Pointe Church on stage in the large group children's ministry. That is where she came up with the idea of Canvases For A Cause, a mobile paint party business where the art work is donated back to various organizations like the Amanda Riley Foundation. In the short year that she has been in business, she has been a finalist for the Impact and Pay It Forward Moxie Award.
Thanks for stopping by.
