Hi, I’m Melissa Dungey. I’ve been in PR/Marketing since 2009. For several years, I was the National Marketing Director for the 2nd largest wildlife control franchise in the U.S., where the focus was on internet marketing, until the corporate office moved from Dunbar, WV to Houston, Texas. After a short stint in restaurant management, I realized that I really missed the excitement, challenges, and creativity involved in marketing and started Expeditions Marketing and Design. In 2020, the name was changed to Delphinium Marketing, reflecting my love of flower gardening.
In addition to marketing and design, I’m passionate about wanting to help make WV a place where its people and businesses prosper. It’s saddening to read about how WV is at the bottom of full-time jobs compared with all other states. I want to do my part by providing quality, as well as affordable, internet marketing, graphic design, web design, and SEO services to small businesses to help them grow. I’ve seen too many fail in the Charleston, WV area and very often it’s the businesses with no or unprofessional marketing and hardly any online presence.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications with a minor in Marketing from WV State University. During my time there, I was a named PR Student of the Year. I also hold an Associate’s Degree in Professional Writing with a minor in Public Relations.
Continuing Education is something that is very important to be able to stay up-to-date in this field. Since 2015, I’ve completed over 50 hours and 9 courses in the areas of web design and development, internet marketing, SEO, and graphic design. I’ve won two PRSA-WV Crystal Awards. One was in External Communications – Search Engine Marketing which was also a finalist for Best in WV out of 137 entries received. The other was in Special Events for a Golf Benefit.
