Melinda says her parents and twin sister – as well as past teachers – have said many times she enjoys talking too much. She figured this was God’s way of saying that she was meant to be a professional communicator. She now uses her gift to communicate with a purpose and really enjoys “selling” ideas or sharing information that is helpful to others.
After working as an independent consultant during the first five years of the business, Melinda was excited to expand the team and once again enjoy the interaction she had become accustomed to in the corporate and agency worlds. She says that the Mindful Kreative team is made up of awesome, inspirational people – each with unique strengths – who create the ideal work environment. She sure knows how to pick the super stars!
When Melinda isn’t hard at work, you might find her planning her next adventure. A travel addict who loves visiting new places and exploring new things, she keeps her bags packed so she can be out the door in minutes when the next adventure or opportunity to travel arises.
Two to three words that describe her best: Passionate, determined and resourceful.
