Melissa is a Georgia peach, born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Her passion for art and design began at a young age, and has blossomed into an exciting career in film. As a graduate of Kennesaw State University, with a Bachelors of Science in Media & Entertainment Studies and a certificate in the Joel A. Katz Music & Entertainment Business Program, Melissa embarked on her journey as a filmmaker in the Fall of 2018, as an intern that knew next to nothing about the mystical and magical world of film.
4 years and 3 promotions later, Melissa is now ECG’s Senior Producer. She has worked many roles on set, from Production Assistant to Producer. She is never afraid to get her hands dirty on set and will do anything to take care of her crew.
Outside of work, she spends most of her time cooking or relaxing at home with her two beautiful kitties and handsome fiancé. Coffee connoisseur, self-taught bartender, classically trained pianist, novice pitmaster and avid traveler, Mel is always ready to suit up for her next adventure. You can catch her jamming in her office to the Allman Brothers Band, Griz or anything in between! She will never turn down a night out at a concert, or a good cup of coffee from a locally-owned coffee shop.
