Vouch for them.

Dan Formosa
They're my advisor  •  NYU grad.
I've known (and advised) Melissa since she was at ASU. She is thoughtful, a great listener, can easily hold a very intelligent conversation, ... and would a great person to add to the network.
David Reilly
They're my friends  •  Owner/Operator, Undisputed Fitness and Training Center. Previously General Manager, Louisville Athletic Club. University of Kentucky grad.
Absolutely fantastic person that has an exceptional work ethic, passion and drive.
Patrick Squire
We worked together at GfK User Centric  •  Senior User Experience Specialist: Designer, Researcher, Engineer, GfK and User Experience Specialist, GfK User Centric. Northwestern grad.
Her focus on tactically solving real world problems is a huge strength.
Jonathan Honor
We worked together  •  Creative, RTC. Previously Team Head, Project H. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign grad.
I worked with Melissa for close to 2 year while working on a social design project. Melissa always took on each new aspect of the project ... with a level of ownership I rarely see. She doesn't ask, "what should I do" and wait, but rather she constantly is volunteering time, saying "here are my ideas...". Melissa never was just a researcher, but was able to fluidly contribute to all areas of the project and adeptly venture into new territory. I have no doubts in her ability to push any new project forward in meaningful ways.
