Melinda arrived at Lone Star Communications in Sept of 2002 as the Executive Admin Assistant. She served at the front desk and worked hard to learn as much as she could about the office.

Comments from Melinda's Coworkers
1. "Every day she is passionate about not only her responsibilities, but the entire team delivering on our values and understanding the customer expectations. She is really good at making sure we are thinking about how we are impacting the customer experience from communication to collection."
2. "She is kind, genuine, and a light to everyone she meets. She is always happy to help and works incredibly hard to keep our finances straight and customers paying on-time. She remembers everyone’s birthday and is a master celebration planner for the office."
3. "My vote is for Melinda Gibbs…She has a lot on her plate and we don’t necessarily make her job easy at times having to track things down. She shows so much patience. I really appreciate her work ethic and passion for what we do."
