Introducing the newest Producer on our iFactory team, Melissa Ranalli. A fan of being at the “center of the wheel” of a project, we’re confident she has the skills and passion to pull your next project together. Learn a little more about her and you’ll see why.
Do you have any nicknames we should know about?
My friends and family call me a number of things but mostly ‘Meliss,’ ‘Mel,’ ‘Ranalli’ or just full first name: Melissa
What are your favorite and least favorite foods?
I can’t get enough pizza and I live the Northend of Boston so there’s no shortage of options. I also really love any type of Mexican dish, seafood and steak! I think the only thing that I will not eat is anything that has mayonnaise on it – yuck!
Why did you choose iFactory?
I was really excited to work with higher-ed and non-profit clients and focus on website strategy and design projects. But I was 100% sold when I met the Boston team – I knew this would be a place of collaboration, support and positive energy and I was even more excited to be a part of that culture as well as work with really smart and kind people.
What is your favorite part about working as a Producer?
I enjoy being the ‘center of the wheel’ of a project, so to speak, and having the opportunity to work with the various departments and phases of a project to pull everything together from kickoff to the end product. It’s fulfilling to see a project from its inception to its launch.
What’s your favorite place you’ve visited?
There are so many! One of my most favorite cities in the US (besides Boston!) is Nashville – I love the South and I love the constant music that is happening at all of hours of the day and night. I was in Greece in May and Mykonos is one of my most favorite European spots – so beautiful and so relaxed, plus there is amazing food!
What’s your background?
I have a bachelor’s degree in English Communications with a minor in Graphic Design from Emmanuel College in Boston.
Cat person or dog person?
I am 100% a dog person – Dogs are always happy to see you and are comforting when you’re sick or sad. I am that person on the street that tries to pet the dogs walking by 🙂
Welcome, Melissa. We’re excited to have you keeping the wheels moving
