Biography
I am a very lucky woman who gets to work for an awesome company part time and also be a full time mom to my wonderful daughter Sophia. At People Report, I manage the two conferences we hold each year for our members as well as help support our sales and marketing team. It is a great job as I love the people I work with and believe that People Report is making a positive impact in the industry.

Prior to People Report, I worked for the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation in the sales and communications department. I graduated from Johnson & Wales University in 2000 with my BA in Sales and Meeting Management. I grew up in this industry and it is a BIG passion of mine and I am so proud to be a part of it.

In my spare time I like to do the things I love most including spending time with my family, cooking, cake decorating and walking- training for the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk in Chicago this year!

Congratulations on completing the 3 Day! Not sure about 2009 San Diego for me, but would love to root for you along the trail. I plan to go to the summer CHART meeting. It's my 25th CHART anniversary.
Take care-

All the best to you and yours,

Hey Melissa,

Not sure if I will be able to attend the meeting in November or not but feel free to let Robin know that I would be a good asset to attend with her and introduce her to everyone. :-)

Posted some more picture of the little cutie pie we call Audrina. Thanks for the reminder.

I know I may be biased but I have to say she is the cutest thing I have seen in a while (outside of my wife and kids).

All is well and trust the same goes for you. Great family shot! Can't make the conference, but maybe our HR folks can. If you get to Cleveland in July for CHART, we can catch up.

And here your name seemed so familiar! I was looking at the messages and scheduling with Matt Smith (met him at RLC last week) and kept seeing your name and wondering why it seemed so familiar.
Another FOHBOH miracle!
Joni did great at RLC in really driving home the point. We have a bunch of folks lined up to do something about it! So how cool is that! Let her know it was very fruitful and that our thoughts and prayers are with her in Her and Wally's loss.
Take care and stay in touch!

Hi Melissa - That's great you're doing the walk in Chicago. You GO GIRL! I just finished a stint as a consumer reviewer for breast cancer research projects through the Department of Defense. It's a great way to have an impact on the future of research leading to a cure.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
