With 25 years' experience in the technology, legal and financial industries, Melissa has a wide knowledge when it comes to all aspects of business.  

Melissa’s career began many moons ago as a legal administrator, working for three highly regarded, fast paced, barristers of law. In this sink or swim environment, she quickly learned the skills required of an exception assistant, and with her natural talents in the areas of organisation, prioritisation and communication, thrived.   

Following, Melissa was appointed Business Manager of an international technology company, overseeing many projects, across the businesses offices in Sydney, London and Canada. From there Melissa moved into the finance and mortgage management industry, beginning in customer care and broker support, and joining DPN as Project Coordinator in early 2017, and promoted to Optimisation & Change Leader in 2020.

Melissa's technical agility, combined with her drive for business process optimisation, commitment to project, and can do approach, make her a valuable member to the DPN team.

When not at DPN, she enjoys out-of-tune karaoke with her children, or dancing up a storm with her husband and friends. Melissa has a positive attitude and true love of life.
