With a passion for bringing out the best in people... I believe successful design and problem solving starts with connection, communication and honest listening. At my core I’m devoted to the practice of simplicity and thoughtful design solutions.

As a natural organizer, I seek to create best practices that are analytical as well as practical with a human-centered approach. With a deep curiosity about the people behind the brand and my spirit of collaboration,
I move projects (and people) from spark to success. I believe anything is possible with dedicated flexibility,
a positive attitude and a good dose of playfulness.

I live and work in Seattle Washington, and remotely wherever new projects take me.

I’d love to talk with you about your next project, please email me at melissachevalier@mac.com
