Melanie’s lifelong passion for events began at the young age of sixteen when she planned her first wedding and gala. Though events are her passion, her professional experience spans the marketing, hospitality, and event fields. After graduating from the Wharton Business School, Melanie found her way to Bluffton South Carolina where she joined the Montage Palmetto Bluff team as a concierge. After an intense period learning the local area, she jumped into the DMC world in an operations role. On any given day you’ll find Melanie sipping on a rich cup of coffee, remodeling her home, running on the beach, reminiscing about her time living abroad in Australia and Europe, and dreaming of where her travels will take her next.
