If you could be an expert in something, what would it be? I would be an expert in languages. I think being multi-lingual opens the world to people.

What led you to this career?  I made the switch to non-profit because I left like I wasn’t helping anyone when working in television. From there, I realized it’s VERY important to feel passionate about the cause you’re working for. Elevating other women is a trend I saw throughout my career, non-profit or not, so I knew Alpha Chi was a great place for me.

Who has influenced you the most in your life?  I don’t have one single person that influenced me. Everyone I’ve met along the way brings something to the table that I can learn from; even if I’m learning what NOT to do! The way that I have navigated my professional and personal relationships is to be around many different types of people – different ethnicities, ages, gender, income level, educational background, etc. By the way, my job is perfect because I get to spend quality time with our alumnae; all of which are tremendous resources of experiences.

Professional experience: Prior to joining the team at Alpha Chi, Melissa was the executive director of the YMCA in downtown Cleveland and was responsible for fundraising, operations and staff development. She spent six years at the YMCA and worked on multicultural development initiatives on a national level with YMCA of USA. Before moving over to the non-profit sector, Melissa worked in television as a producer and promotions supervisor for Buckeye Cable Sports Network.
