Mellissa Sanders was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. As a child she loved cooking, which translated into studying the culinary arts throughout her school years. After graduating, Mellissa got the chance to work in a kitchen as a cook and discovered that cooking was a passion best kept for home and that she’d much rather work with people. 13 years in the restaurant industry, a life change and a manager taking a chance – Mellissa leapt into the professional world.
Her first foray into the office setting was a success. A year in she got her first promotion into Administration. While an Administrator, Mellissa worked with management to come up with new, more efficient procedures as well as writing the new training manuals for future Admins. Only 6 months in Administration, Mellissa was given another promotion into Billing.
