Melissa (or Mel as she prefers) joined Independent in late 2016 as a Property Manager. She went on to win the LPMA National Rising Star award in 2018 as well as speaking at the PMC conference later that same year.
When Independent created a maintenance team, Mel jumped at the chance to take on this new challenge and put on her Bob the Builder hat. During her time in this role, Mel has helped hundreds of tenants and owners work through a variety of maintenance requests from leaking taps and toilets to damage caused by a hailstorm (or two) while working on fine-tuning the system.
In her spare time, Mel enjoys going to her local F45 training studio, organising a team of 20 people to trek Kokoda while raising funds for Lifeline Canberra and spending time with her family.
