Each month here at Acorn, we feature one of our team members on our blog! Our July 2021 Employee Spotlight is Melissa Harl. Melissa is a Technical Designer in our Richmond office, and at the end of August, she’ll be celebrating 23 years of working at Acorn!
Since Melissa has been with our team for so long, we asked her what she enjoys most about her job. She loves the challenge of making precise technical drawings that make the fabrication process flow as smoothly as possible. When we asked her why she loves working at Acorn, she said, “It’s never boring because every project is unique. Since I work on projects in the beginning stage, I love seeing the final result in person. It’s really satisfying to know that the signs we provide will help people get around easier in the world. Where would we all be without signage?”
We love her perspective and she’s a major asset to our team! Melissa is originally from Savannah, GA, but moved to Richmond in 1998. A fun fact about Melissa is that she has been a radio DJ on a local independent LP-FM radio station for almost 17 years! She gets to curate her own show, and absolutely loves sharing music that listeners may not hear anywhere else.
Our team members are the heart of who we are as a company, and we are so thankful to have Melissa as a part of our Acorn family for the past 23 years. Check out our full team at: https://acornsign.com/about/.
