Managing our planning and multi-family residential projects, Melissa arrived at M.W. Steele in 2016.  Not only does she make us giggle when her east coast accent comes out on certain words, (ask her for a cup of coffee when you come in next) she brings a collaborative, easy-going attitude that blends in well with our crew and culture.

While receiving her Master of Architecture from Northeastern University in Boston, MA, she chose to focus on urban design and sustainability.  Her previous professional experience while in New York and San Diego included extensive work in interior design and project management in retail, commercial and hospitality.

She joined us believing that our collaborative nature in the office aligns with her approach to design:  Many differing perspectives feed innovation. This belief, her keen interior design eye and sarcastic personality rounds out our design team in a way that makes us excited for what’s to come.
