Hello.

My name is Melissa and I'm an award-winning graphic designer with a background in media and nonprofit communications. 

Currently, I'm the Senior Designer at Her Campus Media, the #1 media company for college women. There, I lead a team of designers, nerd out while developing cross-departmental systems, and create empowering designs. I'm also the Director of Diversity & Inclusion for AIGA Boston. As a board member, my focus is to support the organization's efforts to create and implement a community-specific diversity and inclusion strategy.

When I'm not in the office, I'm treating myself to learning something new. You may even spot me at a calligraphy workshop or a lecture about retirement planning. In case you don't want to leave our in-person meeting up to chance, feel free to drop me a line.
