Melissa has a knack for finding creative, collaborative solutions as we continue to tell Rutgers’ story.
What I Do
I support and provide strategic direction for the creative, digital, social, and marketing teams for R-Comm. I develop, measure, and implement our marketing campaigns for the New Brunswick and Rutgers Health campuses in the areas of public prominence, enrollment marketing, and priority initiatives.
Finding ways to get projects done. I think there is always more then one way to solve a problem, and often times we get things done through creative solutions.
