Melissa began her career as a summer intern at Perkins Eastman, where she felt an immediate connection to her colleagues who share her passion for creating spaces that improve the lives of the people who live and work in them. Upon her return to the firm as an architect in 2012, she quickly honed in on the Senior Living practice, where she works closely with clients to understand their needs and translate them into physical spaces that inspire joy. She frequently works with clients from a project’s early strategic and master planning through its completion. Melissa’s passion for the well-being of a community’s residents and staff—as well as her love of nature—inspires her work with Senior Living clients and with sustainable applications to their projects.
