Melissa began as Office Manager with Steel-Pro in January 2019 after a varied career serving local nonprofits, a maple syrup business, a speakers’ bureau, a Pulitzer-Prize author and an artist. All of this office managing kept her (mostly) out of trouble since she was too busy shipping paintings, organizing workshops, planning fundraisers, organizing storage closets, working with website gurus or running meetings. At Steel-Pro Melissa is figuring out how to schedule trucks and drivers, timecard data and special events. Two associate degrees (horticulture and nursing) have enriched her favorite role of all, mom of three sons. When not hiking, skiing, reading, cooking or gardening she can probably be found planning her 2-year Steel Pro anniversary party, which she has heard is a biggie…
