Melissa focuses primarily on keeping up with and organizing the ever-changing, always demanding day-to-day puzzle of what is Mickey Connolly available for next! In that role, Melissa enjoys making personal connections with other executive assistants literally around the world. Her #1 bookmark is an indispensable global time-zone conversion tool! A second hat that fits her well is Program Manager for Conversant’s premier Credibility, Influence, and Impact program. Melissa says it is equally a privilege and a joy to meet participants in person, supporting their deeper dive into development as a leader with impeccable care and attention to detail.
Melissa came to Conversant in 2011 from 25+ years as a Producer in the advertising and marketing arena where she thrived on bringing creative visions to fruition in all forms ranging from printed pieces to TV spots – a career that served her well in preparation for the dynamic enterprise that is Conversant. Supporting conversation that affects profound change has been life-changing for Melissa, too!
Melissa’s Texas roots are still evident even after 20 years in Colorado; particularly when an “all y’all” or a “bless your heart” slips into a chat. For fun, she enjoys dancing, gardening, hiking the open spaces near her home and always appreciates a recommendation for an interesting movie or new book to add to her queue.
