Melissa is the SVP of Physical Production at Starz. And like many in this town, she started out as an actor. It’s actually excellent training for life – as is waiting tables – which goes with pursuing acting. She worked her way up producing films until she went in house and rose to the top of the production ladder.
She has sage advice for all of us…such as take every opportunity that is presented. You never know what may happen, and the joy of life is in the unexpected journey. And if you have a dream – pursue it. Don’t end your life full of regrets as to what might have been.
And let’s take a little pressure off of mothering and perfection. Amen to that!
And gratitude is everything.
