It is true, I am known to exceed the decibels in the office and showroom. Everyone may say they get more work done when I'm not around...we all know that is true BUT I bet they missed me!
My Story -
So besides my everyday joking around the office, specialty projects are my all time favorite! The beautifully challenging part about working at 87zero is that no project is the same. The complexity of the projects are unreal, and I've learned so much in the last two years - everything from architecture, structural engineering, construction, maintaining business relationships in different countries, luxury design and how to represent a brand. Since I started, I have been fully engulfed in the renovation of the IBM Building and still going strong! Aside from that, I've worked on restaurants, residential homes and condominium developments, each wearing a different hat.
Prior to 87zero, I worked in Miami for a high end residential designer, project managed all the designs/renovations at Winthrop University and designed playgrounds in Hawaii. I also had the privilege to design, project manage and build a Crossfit gym in Luang Prabang, Laos. Aside from working - I enjoy being outdoors whether that be hiking, beaching it or wiping out on my surf board. I'm also in the early stages of helping to launch a high school youth ministry!
Enough about me. Just come down and introduce yourself to the team and check out the latest and greatest products we are discovering and design. Thanks for reading! - Melissa Vance-
