A resident of Richland County, Ohio for over 30 years, Melissa graduated from Ontario High School prior to earning a dual degree in marketing and finance from Ohio University. After earning her degree, Melissa spent several years as a pharmaceutical sales representative for a global pharmaceutical company, earning several regional and national sales awards.
Following several years in the pharmaceutical industry, Melissa chose to take a more active role the community, serving as a past Board member for the Ontario Recreation Department as well as volunteer in the Ontario Local School district and Board member of the Stingel Elementary Parent Teacher Organization, where she currently serves as Vice President.
While her active role in the community keeps her busy, Melissa chose to join The Holden Agency to continue her professional career and further pursue her passion for sales. She believes her business acumen coupled with her desire to assist others will serve as an asset to her clients: “At the end of the day, the buying and selling of real estate is a business transaction, and I believe my strong sales background will serve my clients well. With that said, I realize that a lot of emotion goes into buying and selling a home or business, and I hope that my desire to help people will prove a valuable asset to all of those that I have the privilege to work with.”
Melissa resides in Ontario with her husband, Sam, who is also a graduate of Ontario High School, and their three daughters. Melissa enjoys spending time with friends and family, volunteering both within the schools as well as a youth sports coach, exercising, and vacationing.
