Melinda is another one of our attentive Marketing Managers who works with LegalMatch member attorneys to highlight the most marketable aspects of their practices and foster expansion. Although she says that she’s partial to lawyers with Southern accents, she maintains important accounts of LegalMatch lawyers throughout the United States.
Before coming to LegalMatch Melinda was earning her Bachelors degree in Marketing at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo at which she also minored in Art and Psychology. San Francisco is home to some outstanding museums like the SFMOMA as well as a number of other galleries that feed Melinda’s fanaticism for Art. When she’s not doing the art thing, Melinda likes going out on the town to restaurants like Absinthe or Delarosa, bars like 15 Romolo, and to concerts. She likes alt/classic rock the best and “only listens to the good stuff: Ray LaMontagne, Fleetwood Mac, Jimi Hendrix, Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, and The John Butler Trio.”
Melinda grew up in Fair Oaks, California and goes back to visit her family regularly. Last year, she went on a 7 month backpacking trip through South America and Europe. She’s not a stranger to traveling; Melinda studied abroad in Australia and New Zealand for 6 months during school. We’re happy she lived through her trips since she is, as she put it, “ridiculously clumsy” having sliced her eye with a ceiling fan (think of Salvador Dali’s Un Chien Andalou), fallen off a cliff in Machu Picchu, and gotten clipped by a taxi in Argentina. Luckily, being an outstanding Marketing Manager has nothing to do with hand-eye coordination or body awareness. Whatever innate sporting abilities she may lack are compensated by her courteous and diligent work ethic.
