My name is Melissa and I’m a retail professional. Yup, that’s right… the luxurious, splendid, predictable world of snow sport retail has been my calling since the 2000-2001 season. Beginning work just outside of Philadelphia, then to Vermont and now Massachusetts has given me the opportunity to meet so many happy faces and work in toy boxes throughout the mid-Atlantic and northeast.
When in my sophomore year of college, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, so I moved home and never had a moments pause on what I wanted to do. I walked into a ski shop I had (admittedly) never shopped at before and never looked back.
I have tried to escape to no avail. The people, product, what I have learned and just good old fun keep me locked in.
Working in every part of a shop from merchandising to inventory control to web has taught me so much and my passion for the industry has grown to a point where now I’m here to share it and life with you.
