Melanie serves Red Thinking clients across a variety of industries, from travel and hospitality to real estate development, so she brings a range of experience to the conference table. She’s the embodiment of professionalism, responsiveness and attention to detail.

Down to earth and full of class, she may very well be one of the most well-traveled people you may ever meet, with stamps in her passport from everywhere from Croatia to Thailand and just about everywhere in between. In part, that may explain her ability to see things from so many different perspectives.

Melanie lives in Brooklyn with her fiancé, Mike, and their cat, Freddie Mercury (who has enough sass to live up to the name.)
