    Melissa believes that even the best science is destined to remain undiscovered unless it’s presented in a clear and compelling way that sparks innovation and drives adoption.

    She’s passionate about showing often-skeptical scientists and technical professionals that they really can change how they present for the better, without changing themselves.

    For the past decade, Melissa has traveled around the world to work with Fortune 100 corporations, institutions and universities, teaching the proven strategies she’s mastered through her consulting work and her 10 years as a faculty member at Penn State University. In 2019, 2020, and 2021, Microsoft recognized Melissa’s work empowering the technical community to use PowerPoint to design slides more effectively by naming her as one of Microsoft's Most Valuable Professionals (MVP).
