When it comes to food marketing, you could say Melissa is well seasoned. She spent almost 15 years rising through the ranks at Wegmans Food Markets, first in stores where, as a Service Team Leader, she managed a team of about 35 employees and completed a Dale Carnegie course in leadership. A SUNY Oswego grad with a BFA in graphic design, Melissa later made the switch from the store to the creative side, honing her skills on a special assignment within the Wegmans Marketing Department. There she assisted with concept design and quality assurance for packaging and other projects. Melissa brings that experience to The Martin Group’s team, using her creativity to elevate the design of Wegmans Brand products. In her free time, Melissa loves spending time with her husband Oscar and dog Macho (a 6-pound Morkie-Poo), hand lettering, and cooking.
