Sigrid Albert

Principal of StepUp Communications

“Melissa worked on two writing projects for my business, one web and one print. She was able to write content based on the background information I provided as well as take an existing draft and rework it into a more coherent, clearer message.

She is able to adapt the tone of the writing to the communication goals of the piece, as well as the medium in which it needed to be delivered. Melissa asked good questions about the work required, which helped clarify the projects for us and delivered the work promptly.

Melissa is a great professional and pleasant to work with.”

Joanne Shum

Director of Pediatrics at Fraser Health Authority
“I have had the privilege of knowing Melissa professionally and personally. We have volunteered on several humanitarian causes at Simon Fraser University and she always holds a high standard of professionalism in everything she does.
When we organized events, she made sure that everything was ready, patiently trained volunteers, and worked collaboratively with the team. On top of having a generous heart, she is a wonderful host both in Canada and Cambodia.”

Arthur Yee

If I could use two words to describe Melissa, it would be inspired excellence. Melissa’s sense of purpose in life and social awareness is truly inspiring to me. It’s this passion that fuels the fires that have underpinned all of her remarkable achievements in her career and her strive toward excellence in everything she does.

A keen strategic thinker, Melissa is a natural communicator with writing abilities that are second to none. I highly recommend Melissa as a fellow communicator and friend for anyone who is lucky enough to cross her path.

“I have worked with Melissa on various projects and she has always been a passionate, self-motivated individual who takes ownership of the work she does to deliver great results. I first worked with Melissa as a consultant for Salt Spring Coffee Company. She was an avid contributor to the team who brought creative ideas and well-researched recommendations to the table.”
