Melinda Cross



My focus is creating innovative communication concepts, compelling messages, and conversation-changing content.

I write for Fortune 500s, mid-sized private companies, not-for-profits, foundations and start-ups. Clients consider me particularly adept at unraveling complex and multi-layered information into simpler, more memorable language.

The outcome? Your messages and stories move
 audiences to take action.

Prior to starting my communications consultancy, I held Creative Director/Writer positions at leading agencies in Chicago including Leo Burnett, DMB&B, Euro RSCG, and Frankel. My education includes a Master's Degree from Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism and a B.A. from the University of Minnesota in Political Science and Communications. I began my communications career as an Assistant Press Secretary in the U.S. Senate.
