Melissa Martinez

Managing Editor

Managing Editor, Melissa Martinez manages the Writing Department for Marketing Choices. An exceptionally hard-working, creative, and passionate writer, Melissa graduated from college with a degree in English Literature. Her love for writing and reading led her down a path to educate. As a teacher, Melissa made it her mission to help instill the same kind of love she had for the written word to her students. Her main priority was to create an environment that let her students know that there was always someone in their corner who believed in them and was willing to push them never to settle. After six years of teaching, she decided to follow her dreams of becoming an author. While pursuing an editorial internship with Marketing Choices, she was offered a position as Project Manager and later hand-selected to manage the Writing Department. Attention to detail, an in-depth understanding of grammar and content style, clear insight on the value of content marketing, and an obsession for quality work are just a few characteristics Melissa brings to Marketing Choices. Melissa also carried over her experience teaching and working with students and manages between 15-24 editorial and content editing interns daily. Her interactive leadership with the intern team provides great benefit and endless opportunities for growth; for both Marketing Choices, clients, and the intern.

When she is not curled up with a good book, you can find her spending time playing with her puppy Lincoln, watching television, or baking. She recently moved from the island of Puerto Rico to the mainland with her husband in search of their next adventure.
