Every moment is an organizing opportunity, every person a potential activist, every minute a chance to change the world. -Dolores Huerta

 She has helped me develop many leadership skills; analytical/critical thinking, conflict resolution, project management, systems development and management, backwards planning and most importantly how to be a great leader. I appreciate her attention to detail, professionalism and honesty. She is intentional in everything she does,.

- Lorena S., Associate Director of CareCorps Program

Melissa is incredibly smart and thoughtful about the best ways to solve complicated problems involving multiple teams that required strategic communication and emotional sensitivity. She believed in me and gave me confidence that I could do my job well.

- Charlie M., Associate Director, Family and Community Partnerships

Melissa's exceptional warmth, presentation style, and ability to engage were truly remarkable. To ensure everyone benefits from the valuable insights and perspectives within the group, maybe to push & encourage active participation by gently prompting those who may be more reserved to share their thoughts.
