Why You Needed a Social Media Manager, Yesterday. 

Yesterday face-to-face networking, door-to-door travel, and a thousand handshakes a day paved the road to successful business. billboards were the way to get a customer's attention. megaphone-style media and advertising attracted an audience. today?  networking is instantaneous, and done through tweets, posts, sends and shares. headlines are 140 characters or less. relationships, empathy, and speaking your demographic's language are key.  The arena?  Social Media.  


97% of consumers search for information, such as menus, locations, reviews, and hours, about local businesses online.

"Melissa's recommendation to start journaling has been such a great addition to my business and life. I was just looking for social media guidance, but got so much more! I was most happy with how easy and effective the whole process of working with her has been. Melissa mapped out everything for me to succeed with my social media, and answered any and all questions that came up. I would absolutely recommend her! For the first time in my business, I feel like I have a plan for my social media, and it's all thanks to Melissa!




I’m Melissa, and I am seriously into social media.  Whether it's Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or LinkedIn, I revel in it, and I want to help you rock its power to make your business a success!

With a professional and academic background in marketing, linguistics, and photography, as well as myriad experiences in the education, travel, technology, beauty, and hospitality industries, I am uniquely positioned to help you in your social media endeavors. As an educator, I believe in sustainability, and working with you along the way to empower you in making wise social media decisions. 

When I'm not running around the virtual social media space, I can be found traveling all over the world, attending hip hop classes (my top rock kills it), and listening to awesome 90s pop and r&b.  My love can be bought through light roast coffee (Chicago's Metropolis is one of my favorite roasters!), 85% dark chocolate, and business class tickets to new and exciting destinations (but of course I'll take economy too)!
