When Melissa was hired out of college by Corie Farnsley, she had no idea she was meeting a friend and professional colleague who would impact her career so profoundly. Melissa worked as a communications assistant for Corie at Christ Church Cathedral in Indianapolis, Ind., for a mere five months before Corie left to start her own freelance business. But their paths would cross again.
In December 2007, Melissa started a new role as a marketing communications specialist at IMMI, a safety restraint manufacturer in Westfield, Ind. In this role, she managed a variety of projects, including writing and editing promotional materials and technical manuals, managing the logistics for video shoots, generating leads at trade shows, building key customer relationships to document testimonial stories and more.
In April 2011, Melissa went on to work as a marketing/pr specialist at IU Health North Hospital in Carmel, Ind., before taking on a regional role promoting the services of four IU Health hospitals. For more than four years, Melissa worked with service line leaders to promote key hospital services like cancer care, orthopedic care, emergency services, sleep medicine and more. In 2015, shortly after the birth of Melissa’s daughter, Corie asked if she’d be interested in a part-time opportunity, and in September 2015, Melissa joined CorComm Creative as a communications manager.
Melissa’s career has exposed her to many different industries and has given her extensive experience in copy writing, social media management, strategic marketing planning, e-communications, website management, event planning and more.
Today, Melissa lives in Westfield with Thomas, her husband of nine years, and their beautiful, funny daughter, Millie. Melissa’s most favorite thing to do is snuggle up on the couch with her family and watch a Disney movie. She has a soft spot for arts and cultural activities and has even been known to do some local community theater in the past.
