Meet Krista Rose, Marketing Communications Specialist

Business Unit and Job Title

Marketing Communications Specialist

What does your job entail?

Helping tell Melink’s story. A big focus of my job is content creation for Melink’s blog, website and social media, as well as organizing materials for tradeshows and miscellaneous marketing efforts.

What did you do before coming to Melink?

I graduated from Ohio University with a degree in journalism, which led me into event planning, public relations, and eventually digital marketing. Before Melink, I was the marketing manager of a travel club for RV owners. I’m from a camping family and own a small travel trailer, so this was a really neat role for me. I never tired of hearing club members’ stories and living vicariously through their RV trips!

What is your favorite aspect of working at Melink?

I really value the work-life balance and the trust that the company places in its employees. It is unlike any place I have previously worked.

What do you like to do in your time off?

I’m a wannabe homesteader. I have my own flock of chickens for egg production, and I’m really into gardening and canning. I also like spoiling my dog, Tally. She is a beagle-basset hound mix. And, of course, I like going on camping trips with my husband!

Welcome to our chicken coop!

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.

I like visiting different state parks, and I have a silly goal of visiting every state park in Ohio. I am currently at 18/75.

What are you most proud of?

I’m a hard worker, and for several years I worked multiple jobs.  I may not have always had a job in my preferred field, but I’ve always given 100%.

What are your hopes for our industry?

That more businesses start viewing clean energy as the “norm.”

Do you collect anything?

Currently obsessed with the Pioneer Woman’s colorful kitchenware. It’s taking over my house… There’s really no need for me to own five mixing bowls just because they are pretty!
