Melissa began her career in property management in 1995 as an on-site manager for a HUD 40-unit apartment complex in Eastern Oregon. She obtained her Oregon property management license and oversaw three properties located in Pendleton, Milwaukee and Coos Bay. Soon she was promoted to Area Manager and moved to Wenatchee. She oversaw 14 HUD and Rural Development apartment complexes for the Eastern side of the State of Washington. This same year, Melissa earned an Associates of Applied Science in Accounting while working full time and raising a family. In 2003, after moving to Boise, Idaho, she began working for a single-family management company and oversaw a portfolio of 150 properties. After a few years, she transferred to a sister company, was named Vice President and oversaw large apartment complexes, mobile home parks, commercial properties and Homeowner Associations. After the birth of her first grandson, Melissa and her family moved to Lacey and she began her career with Olympic Rentals in 2017. Melissa is currently an RMP (Residential Management Professional) candidate with the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM). She loves to joke around at work and does her best to annoy her team members with songs that get stuck in her head. Melissa enjoys spending time with her family and chasing her rambunctious grandson.
