Melissa Smith Sr. Front-end Developer, 8+ Years of Web Development Expertise, 2x Recipient of IMPACT’s Helpfulness Core Value Award

You can say Melissa was in love with all things computers since the day she learned to walk (and has a picture to prove it). Having a love for IT, you think she would go to school to be an IT nerd, but instead went in the direction of graphic design.

After a handful of years of doing both web design and web development, she followed her heart and went in the direction of solely focusing on web development.

With over 10 years of experience, Melissa leads a team of 4 other developers and helps the team create unique web experiences for our clients.

Outside of work you can find Melissa, spending time with family, maybe at the occasional bowling alley, traveling to Pittsburgh or the Jersey Shore, or watching/listen to any Pittsburgh sports. Yes, it is true I bleed black and gold for the City of Champions. 🙂
