What students say

“Melissa has been an incredible mentor. She’s very personable, soft spoken and is flexible when it comes to rescheduling requests if any. Her design thinking perspectives are bang on and she does a very good job of suggesting alternative designs. She’s great at pointing out design choices and why it would or wouldn’t work. During the course, I worked on a side project and she could easily adapt to the concept and help me design a prototype for it. All of the mentor sessions were well structured with a clear agenda. During the entire course, she sent resources, exciting articles and many helpful documentation to further interest me in Design. Thanks Melissa for being an awesome mentor!”

- Ruta G, UX: Interaction Design

“Melissa is honestly more than I expected going into this course. She goes above and beyond the expectations I had and is using a holistic approach to help me feel confident in course and career strategies. She listens attentively and is super creative and earnest. She is not afraid to give real feedback and point out my shortcomings or blindspots when I approach an assignment, as well as giving recognition and praise where deserved. I feel like I have and am learning a lot. She is also willing to go beyond the timeline with me to help me really get the most out of the course. I feel confident she would be a great mentor to anyone who is investing in honest learning and hard work.”

- Kira D, UX Research & Strategy
