Here’s what some WIFV Women had to say about working with Melissa!

“The first day I interned at WIFV, I went to shake Melissa’s hand and she responded with ‘Oh don’t bother, I’m no one important,’” Boy was she wrong! In fact, Melissa has the entire inner workings of WIFV inside her head! I am so glad I have had the opportunity to get to know her as a mentor and friend.” –Sam Aurilia (2015 Summer Intern)

“It was love at first sight! Melissa is the Mother Teresa of DC filmmakers.” — Jane Barbara (former Board Member)

“Melissa IS WIFV!” — Imon Edmonson (staff member, 2009-2011)

Thanks so much for all of your tireless work, Melissa! Here’s to 10 more years of helping our organization flourish!
