Melissa is a master media problem solver. She’s on speed dial for clients, agencies and broadcasters looking to find a better way.
Her ability to get real results has made Melissa a highly sought-after Media Adviser, Content Creator and Broadcast Producer.
As a journalist she quickly rose through the editorial ranks from newspapers to talkback radio (ahhh miss you) to an extensive career in television in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. She was one of the driving forces behind some of the country’s most successful Television including News, Current Affairs, Breakfast TV and Live Coverage. Chief of Staff and Senior Producer roles were a perfect fit for Melissa who thrives on having all the balls in the air at once and making sure everything comes together perfectly and on deadline.
When Melissa was promoted to GM of Marketing and Communications for Seven West Media in WA it became the invaluable opportunity to round out her understanding of how the media works at the highest level.
