I’ve spent the past 20 years raising money and awareness for nonprofit organizations on the south coast. I’m passionate about helping nonprofits improve their messaging so they can increase their audience and raise more money. My particular specialty is using digital communication tactics in a powerful way to leverage offline endeavors for donor acquisition and retention. I can also help fill any gaps in the marketing, sales, and fundraising departments.

When I need marketing or fundraising help, hands down I call Mel. I can honestly say she provides exemplary work and off-the-charts results.

Not only is Melinda a great writer, but she has insight and empathy that helped articulate what our supporters wanted and needed.
Pat Snyder
I have worked with Melinda as both the Director of Development at VNA and as a nonprofit freelancer over the past 20 years. She is multi-talented, with great skills in fundraising, marketing, copywriting, and technology related to all these functions. She is cheerful, committed, passionate, and always a joy to work with!
