Melissa is a talented and fearless writer with whom I have had the pleasure of working on a variety of projects. She managed the Santa Fe Film Festival blog, guiding content and keeping a strong vision for the site. She is an ace script doctor and screenwriter as well.

Melissa is extremely knowledgeable and creative; she can bring excellent ideas to the table, and then make them happen! I came to her with an idea and she inspired me to move forward with my dream of creating my own website and podcast. She is worth every minute of time you spend with her, because you think about what she’s said all week long!
