2019 November Featured Member: Melissa Chapman

Hello everyone! My name is Melissa Chapman. I graduated from Newton Community High School in 2009 and furthered my education by graduating with an Associates degree in Science and Arts from Olney Central College in 2011. My working experience in customer service and clerical knowledge landed me a position at Stevens Industries in 2018.  This October I celebrated my one year anniversary at Stevens Industries where I hold the position known as a Receptionist/Clerical Assistant. Being a Receptionist/Clerical Assistant has taught me many skills that I can useto further my clerical career within the company.  Since 2015, I have also been the Clerical Event Coordinator at my church in which I perform a lot of marketing tasks. Making a difference in the lives of others is a strong passion of mine.  I love reaching out when I feel there is a need.   At Stevens Industries, I am currently involved in a committee supporting United Way known as Stevens Social Cabinet.  My major focus is to help build a better environment not only for myself, but for others around me.

Becoming a member of YBNext has given me the opportunity to connect and get to know local successful, business individuals on a more personal level.  It is also a great way to network and meet others outside of YBNext to see what forthcoming news and events are yet to come in Effingham County.  Growth and the ability to inspire others is what I am striving for most when it comes to being involved in YBNext. As an individual, I hope to build lasting relationships and gain the knowledge I can use to improve my future potential business endeavors.   I look forward to seeing the opportunities YBNext will offer me in the future!

In my own time, I enjoy working out at the gym, singing, watching movies with friends and family, skincare, and baking/cooking when I have time.  I have two female dogs whose names are Pebbles and Emma.  Just recently I moved and currently reside in Greenup, IL.
