Melissa A Vitale is a digital media and public relations professional with experience in vice category, entertainment, fashion, beauty, consumer and enterprise technology, hospitality and real estate.
Melissa cut her teeth working under Jim Dowd, a PR veteran of over 40 years. Her style of PR mimics Dowd's, diverting from traditional press release distribution and instead focusing on storytelling and cultivating strong relationships with lifestyle, culture and business media.
Lauded for her entrepreneurial mind and her beat into the transforming media industry, Melissa has secured coverage for her clients in Newsweek, Forbes, Business Insider, New York Times, New York Magazine, Women's Health, Refinery29, Self, Shape, Prevention, Men's Health, TechCrunch, YAHOO! News, Mashable, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Inc.com, Venture Beat, International Business Times, QZ, among others.
Melissa considers everything a networking opportunity. She’ll travel around the country for tacos but will starve before eating pizza outside the tri-state area.
