They orchestrate comprehensive solutions that combine all the elements by prioritizing experience strategy, data-driven insights, the right talent, and a touch of magic.
HOMEBUILDER MARKETING EXPERIENCE
Melissa's decade of in-house leadership experience gives DO&Be Agency an advantage over some of the other marketing agencies. Melissa understands the goals of each homebuilder are unique and has played a leadership role in marketing strategy, online sales, design center management, product development, customer experience, and company culture. With a full grasp of the home-building process, Melissa was especially proud of her role in the NHQA (National Home Quality Award) process for Adair Homes.
Melissa is dedicated to continuous improvement, embodying the motto of "do and be better" in her work and personal life while fostering that same ambition in others. This relentless commitment to better is why Melissa is thrilled to share the valuable lessons she has acquired from her diverse experiences by presenting at industry events, speaking on a podcast, and through mentorship.
Passionate about creating lasting change, Melissa actively engages in industry leadership roles to promote important causes. With a heart full of love and gratitude, she serves on several boards and committees, including the HomeAid Portland Board, Portland PWB Council Chair, and NAHB's Cultural Vibrancy Committee (formerly DEI) Vice-Chair, displaying her commitment to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion.
ROOTED IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
When she's not working in her Vancouver, WA office, Melissa can be found sipping on Pacific Northwest Pinot Noir while enjoying some music from the '90s, playing games with her family, or snuggling her two puppies. She is happy to be a "Grauntie," incredibly proud of the amazing human she has raised, and eternally grateful for that boy who swept her off her feet in high school.
Melissa is passionate about educating industry groups on the latest trends in homebuilding, marketing, women in construction, and leadership. And it shows in her work.
She provides insights and expertise that can benefit any organization looking to succeed in this constantly evolving industry.
