Having successfully completed her first Tough Mudder, which has been deemed one of the toughest competitions, requiring competitors to run 10 miles up and down a mountain, through mud, fire, ice, barbed wire, and electric shocks in 28 degrees, the Mellonaid team felt Miriam Williamson was most proficiently trained to enter the world of Project Management.
Aside from her occasional involvement in extreme sports, Miriam has also recently celebrated winning two kickball championships and completed six half marathons. In her spare time Miriam further exercises her creativity by dressing up as inanimate objects for Halloween and adding to her lavish collection of random Holiday decor.
At Mellonaid, Miriam brings with her experience from her previous positions. As copy editor and design editor at The Pendulum, Elon University’s newspaper, she was part of the staff that earned a title as a Pacemaker (College newspaper version of a Pulitzer) finalist, and Pacemaker winner two years consecutively. She also acted as a Marketing Coordinator for a large telecommunications company, helping maintain and promote several brands. Very much a jack-of-all-trades, Miriam can copywrite, design, and maintain and improve client relations.
In the world of design, Miriam explains, “Design is turning your imagination and creativity into something useful and effective. It’s putting purpose to something that looks awesome, and making something with a purpose look awesome. You can find it anywhere - any time someone puts the extra effort into making something efficiently attractive, it’s design.” And her inspiration is found from “relationships. Be it friends, family, or even just brief meetings, the people in my life inspire me.”
At the office, Miriam is excited about ensuring the highest quality of work for clients, troubleshooting projects, and making sure that clients enjoy their experience working with Melloniad. In fact, Miriam is most passionate about helping provide clients with even more than what they are expecting. She also loves experiencing the creative process--seeing one idea taken from start to finish and how much each person’s ideas can change, alter and improve it.
