Melanie Burk started college planning on getting a degree in accounting. That didn’t last long! She eventually switched to graphic design, something she knew little about. And, even though a college professor told her she wouldn’t be successful, she made her own path and has been wildly successful.


Melanie dabbled in several different areas of design before finding her exact niche. But, since she did, she has worked with large brands and big products. She’s not only a designer but an entrepreneur as well. She is one of the brains behind a new social platform, Prixm, which removes the bummer aspects of social media and focuses on sharing people’s stories.  


Mel is also a wife and mother of 5 adorable kiddos! She has amazing advice about everything from failure to finding balance in your daily life. You are going to love her — we PROMISE.
