Client Feedback

“Mel was a saviour to the digital side of my business. I know I needed a website and had no where to start, I was having trouble with Facebook and I felt like I just had to give up. Mel took over and gave me the most beautiful website, and took care of all of the social media issues that seemed impossible to me. She did a wonderful job of taking my ideas and changing her initial design to match my style perfectly (even though she was not far off to begin with). She went above and beyond to make sure I got was I was looking for. Having someone so professional and have such a great attitude taking care of the digital side of my business was such a weight off my shoulders. As a business owner I have enough to worry about day to day and having her on my team with such a huge asset! I would recommend to anyone looking for her services!

Mel is one of the most creative and passionate writers I’ve ever worked with. She can always be relied on to come up with new, inventive, and engaging stories, social posts, infographics and video ideas that tell a brand’s story in fun, fresh ways. Mel’s positive attitude is also one of the key reasons I would recommend her talents. She’s fun and pleasant to work with.

I worked with Mel once, and she’s been top of my list ever since. Mel is a natural collaborator, and just as independent—she’ll get the shots you want, whether you ask for them or not.
