Melissa majored in design, but during her senior year in college, she accepted an internship working at a pharmaceutical management company. Melissa stayed with the company for 10 years, but she felt creatively drained. She became interested in design for startups, so she freelanced for Curalate, and after a few months, Melissa became a full-time employee.
Melissa focuses on how Curalate’s employees and clients perceive and interact with the company. She determines Curalate’s voice, culture, and brand personality, and she ensures that everyone’s experience is a pleasant one. Every day for Melissa is different—she does everything from helping plan conferences to designing office spaces and planning fun activities for the organization.
