Laurie understands business. As a former successful business owner herself, she is savvy to what it takes to capture a market and grow it where others haven’t. Her unique sense of customer service and marketing expertise are what position her to be a successful operations manager.
Laurie has spent 3 years assisting with the development of the infrastructure here at the Traverse City office. She came to EverywhereUGO with a stellar track record, in sales and marketing, in the flood restoration industry. While working in this industry, Laurie saw an opportunity for growth and launched a well thought out sales and marketing plan that resulted in achieving sales over 1.25 million.
Laurie originally hails from the Detroit area. In 2012, she moved to Traverse City with her husband of 24 years, to be closer to family and to enjoy Lake Leelanau. What does Laurie do when she isn’t boating or playing on jet skis in her beloved lake? Riding a motorcycle of course with her good friends from the national, women only riding group, Stilettos on Steel.
With over 15 years of experience, Melissa came to EverywhereUGO in May of 2016 brandishing a diverse background of sales and marketing experience that includes medical device and pharmaceutical sales, oil and natural gas sales and retail pharmacy marketing. She has worked for both large corporations and small “mom and pop shops” and appreciates the uniqueness of each.
Clients value Melissa’s forthright approach. She will never leave you guessing as to where your account stands and is also known for her open and honest opinions. She doesn’t believe in the “fluff”. With a creative mind and a passion for customer service, her favorite part of the job is seeing her accounts be successful and flourish as a result of the teamwork at EverywhereUGO.
A Michigan native, Melissa takes full advantage of what Traverse City has to offer. She’s an avid mountain biker and is known to get on her snowboard occasionally on local slopes or out West. When not riding bikes with her husband and friends, you can find Melissa relaxing on a local beach, reading a book, and enjoying this beautiful part of the state.
