Her wealth of experience in  HR has been vital and essential to the company and is not only helping to create a team that fits CAVU's company culture, but also our specialized needs.

Melissa was able to help me visualize and compose our company's values and mission to create a

sustainable culture that will ensure we have the right team in place.  Her focus and attitude  on

company culture and how it is intertwined with HR has been eye-opening and completely

welcomed.  I think she has made this start-up much stronger!"

"Melissa came on board  as a consultant to develop a compensation plan .  She  has exceptional HR knowledge.  She practically started from scratch and took on the daunting task of matching our positions with an outside survey to creating a salary structure that would work for our growing company.  She listens and shifts gears as needed to accomplish the task at hand.  On an interpersonal level, she is very effective in presenting ideas and concepts to the executive team.   I really enjoyed our collaboration, teamwork, and appreciated her owning the project  to completion .
