Melissa, CEO & Creative Director of Compliment Inc., started her company to blend her two passions -- education and empowerment. She was a high school English and AVID teacher here in Northern California; and she has worked with some of the most brilliant, beautiful, thoughtful, compassionate, and interesting young people. Since her first day in business, she's donated 5% of every sale to the Compliment Scholarship, which has already benefitted six students in their first year of college. And that's just the beginning. Melissa not only created her business to follow her passion, but to empower people to believe in themselves. 

Here at DISPLAY: California, we love stories such as Melissa's; who wants to make the world a better place. You may be shopping at DISPLAY: California and think her products are just pretty jewelry, but her story is what makes her remarkable.
