Between the reliability of mathematics and the uncertainty of investments, you can find Melissa’s sweet spot. Though she was first drawn to wealth management by the promise of a dynamic, fast-paced career, the industry’s never-ending learning curve has been her sticking point. Inspired by community and creativity, Melissa is always looking to innovate in her role as Director of Portfolio Management at Americana Partners. “Innovation, to me, means bringing into reality a fresh new idea or concept. I like to think about what could be, visualize change, implement it and help others along the way.” Melissa exercises and meditates to recharge, but when she’s looking for a deeper reset, she always turns to her family.
