"I've had the pleasure to have worked with Melissa both as a colleague at Oakland University and as a collaborator on work projects for about eight years. She not only has the design thinking to be a creator, but also has the analytical skills to uncover deep meanings, connections, and to synthesize disparate concepts. Additionally, she is also an outstanding facilitator and instructor who keeps laser focused on outcomes and the needs of her learners. She also has the ability to lead teams and to inspire followers due to her strong listening skills, passion, and clear communication. Melissa is a uniquely talented person who is committed, credible, and has a track record of successes both professionally and educationally." -William Solomonson, Associate Professor of Organizational Leadership at Oakland University

She takes great pride in her work and seeing the students and instructors who use the material get the highest value from her work. She is intense and relentless in delivering excellent work. She strives to not only deliver material as requested, she seeks to understand the content, the client's perspective and add insight that makes a difference. Melissa is a strong partner in designing, implementing, and improving the path to instruction and learning." -Susan Pleasant, Coach and Advisor at SPleasant Consulting
