Business Development Coordinator
Melissa helps lead new business development and works with employee owners to help strengthen the company. She’s known for taking big projects and breaking them down into smaller, more feasible pieces, then managing the timelines so it all gets done.
Before she joined Look East, Melissa worked in agricultural equipment and technology industries, where she was involved with startup and new business development for emerging companies.
Part of the first generation in her family to not farm, Melissa was instead raised on the business side of agriculture. She grew up around co-ops and grain elevators all across Missouri and Kansas.
Today, she and her husband are avid scuba divers and love to travel. If she’s not diving, you can find her working on remodeling projects around the house or wrangling their four-legged children.
