Melissa Thomas Linkedin

Consultant

“You're not alone in your frustrations and problems. Being vulnerable with your staff and consultants is the first step to getting those problems fixed.”  

 Melissa Thomas’ colleagues have nicknamed her, “the professor.” She loves learning new things and sharing her discoveries with others, and brings a high degree of positivity, creative energy, and inclusivity to every project she leads. Her tried and true motto is: Nothing is impossible if you're willing to ask the right questions, listen really well, and be creative and flexible.

Melissa loves nothing more than the “ah-ha!” moment that happens between everyone on a team — when a high level of stakeholder trust is built in a way that a clear solution to a problem suddenly emerges along with the steps needed to solve it. Melissa comes to Propeller with expertise in change management strategy development and execution, stakeholder interview leadership, and career path modeling and competency behavior matrixing for both government and private industry. She has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Virginia.
