Melissa is a professional based out of St. Cloud, Minnesota.  She comes to ImprovEdge with years of experience in marketing and communications in the beverage industry, most recently managing a beer portfolio. Melissa is passionate about process improvement – one of her favorite projects she led involved reducing the time for new products to get into the system from 45 days to 5 days.

Melissa earned her BA at St. Cloud State University. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for Bernick’s, is a member of the Bernick’s Community Foundation, and serves on the Anna Marie’s Alliance Campaign Committee. Melissa enjoys hiking, and when that becomes impossible in the Minnesota winter, she trades her hiking boots for snowshoes. She and her husband are avid travelers and frequently spend time in England with their family.
