Public Relations Assistant
Melissa joined simoneink in July 2019 after working as an Event and Marketing Manager for four years in the Washington DC area.
Born and raised in DC, Melissa attended George Mason University where she graduated with a degree in Sports Management and minor in Legal Studies. During college, Melissa held the position as the Director of Public Relations for the Sport Management Society, and shortly after graduation had the opportunity to move to California and intern within the public relations department of a sports marketing firm. It was within this role where she developed the ability and skillset for event planning, media relations, and social media management. Shortly after returning to the East Coast, Melissa took her previous experiences and planted her roots in the hospitality industry.
As a PR Assistant at simoneink, Melissa works directly with account executives and directors on daily communication and reporting with prominent hospitality groups, restaurants, boutique hotels and spirits.
When she is out of the office, you can find Melissa competitively watching a Nats game, playing tennis or hanging out with her friends.
