Though Melissa grew up “in the middle of nowhere” in central Ohio, before coming to work at NDG she spent a decade living and working in New York City, honing her media strategy skills serving a wide variety of clients at MediaVest. She graduated from Ohio University, where she created her own major by integrating an advertising-journalism curriculum with a telecommunications curriculum. She admits that she’s a nerd. She also admits to being an avid Buckeyes fan, despite her Bobcat pedigree. She loves to cook and bake. She’s run seven marathons and countless half-marathons. To keep up with all the baking, she says.
