As the Design Lead, Melina manages a team of talented designers and developers. Being at GNGF since 2016, she has been a part of many changes for more than half of GNGF’s existence. Melina overlooks everything design and development related that comes in and goes out, making sure that client requests are met and delivered with high quality. Values, in regards to Melina’s directs, are top of mind as it is important for her to support, listen, and simply relate to each other.
Melina is proud to have climbed up the ladder from a passionate designer and developer herself to the manager she is today. Over the years, her and her team have collected numerous awards that show GNGF’s creativity, talent, and uniqueness.
Outside of work, alongside her wife, Melina loves raising her two step-daughters, August and Cody Lou. While they keep them on their toes with weekly sport and musical activities, their English Bulldog, Petunia, loves to literally “sleep, eat, potty, repeat” (easiest dog in the world).
