Purdy, Melissa



A versatile go-getter, Mel has transformed experience in electronic media, public relations and journalism into a graphic arts career at CMU. In addition to creating high-impact pieces for the university, she oversees Media Graphix, CMU’s only student-led design agency.

Keeping busy comes second nature to Mel. When she’s not running an Etsy shop, fighting to save old houses and restoring furniture, she’s trying managing a zoo of pets — eight cats and two dogs. Oh, and she’s going back for her MBA.
