Melissa is an award winning human resources professional with over 15 years of experience working in the advertising, digital, entertainment, financial, media and technology sectors. She has experience building and running people teams in scrappy start-ups just making their first HR hires to large enterprise companies with established foundational people processes already in place.

Her passion for creativity fuels her desire to find the most innovative solutions to business problems. While at Beyond, Melissa launched a Diversity and Inclusion program across the US using design thinking. Some of the innovations from this program include a plug-in designed to reduce bias when screening job applicants, an AI learning program, an AI ethics policy, and a D&I Playbook entailing how to include accessible design in all the creative work coming out of the agency. Antibias won Honorable Mention at the 2019 Fast Company World Changing Ideas Awards & 2019 Fast Company Innovation By Design Awards.
Melissa recently partnered with Jenai Marinkovic and Kris Rides at TiroSecurity to launch the NextCiso Apprenticeship. The security job of the future is being automated away; programs for security certifications and degrees do not address the skills necessary to make graduates ready to work on day one. Minority representation within the cybersecurity field is roughly 26%, with only 14% women. Minority employment tends to be concentrated in non-management positions, fewer occupying leadership roles, despite being, on average, more highly educated. Managing diversity is one of the defining issues of our time. The program is designed to elevate women and BIPOC and set them on their journey to becoming a CISO.
