Bachelor of Journalism
Addicted to witty wordplay, carefully crafted content, and alliteration (apparently), Mel adds her unique flair to everything she writes. Her background is in SEO copywriting and digital marketing, and nothing makes her happier than writing copy that achieves results and exceeds the client’s expectations. Although 5-year-old-Mel’s dream job was to be an ice cream salesperson, she’s definitely pleased the initial decision was reviewed and amended to follow the copywriting career path, instead.
