 Melissa Rocchio

Member Speaker for June 2018

Welcome!  For years Melissa worked in Corporate America which provided her a broad range of immeasurable experiences with amazing mentors and teams.  A few areas she worked in: Human Resource, Talent Management, Organization Development, and Training & Development on a local and global level.   Being recognized for leading and executing programs with excellence across a global community was very rewarding…BUT   it wasn’t enough. In 2014, Melissa’s journey took her on a different path.  This forced Melissa to experience different aspects of her life with a very different lens.
From Melissa:

“My purpose is to build a community of learning, connecting people to build upon each other’s talents, and to serve others in a way of being part of a positive ripple in their lives.

My website is part of that journey…be prepared, this journey has a map with many roads still under construction…and I am glad you are taking that journey with me. Why? I am engaged in the effort to ensure I raise as many of you UP and help you Live Connected.”
