Melissa is an East Tennessee native. Her career started in telecommunications where she enjoyed developing and leading new and awesome teams. This passion eventually led her to the grocery industry where she found a fresh start that still allowed her to combine her interests and skills in leadership. She’s been in the grocery industry for over 7 years now. When not working, Melissa enjoys growing things like orchids, butterfly gardens, succulents and unusual plants. She and her husband love to travel and try to get to a new destination every year.
They are the proud parents of two rescue hounds, Charlie, a bloodhound mix and LeRoux, a Catahoula hound. Animal rescue is a cause very close to her heart!
Melissa’s favorite foods include sushi and pizza… Lucky’s pizza and sushi, of course! She has a particular fondness for starting off her Sunday mornings listening to Etta James. When we asked her if there was something silly about her that she’d like to share, she informed us that, “I’m actually a mermaid!” Melissa is drawn to the water and it’s where she finds herself at her happiest. Ormond Beach will make a perfect fit to combine her love of work and water!
Why Lucky’s? Melissa is excited to be a part of our young and growing company. In her own words, she told us that in our stores and as a company as a whole, “The opportunities are endless. I love their commitment to the communities around them and their Team Members! My Lucky’s team members and I are so excited to become a part of this amazing Ormond Beach community!”
