Melissa Eggleston

As a content strategist with a UX focus, Melissa Eggleston helps people and organizations create memorable website content. In 1996, she wrote her first online stories about soccer and violated all the rules we now know about writing for the web. She consults on communication projects and creates content for all types of organizations – from dentists in California to non-profits in New York City. Previously she worked for Duke University and Bloomberg News. Melissa gained her multimedia skills and love of usability at UNC-Chapel Hill’s School of Journalism where she got her Master’s degree. When not working, you’ll likely find Melissa on her yoga mat or outside with her family. Learn more about her at
