About Melissa

Melissa Rosenbaum is the Assistant Director of Marketing and Communications at the Atlanta Jewish Federation. Melissa was born and raised in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Telecommunication from the University of Florida.
Melissa moved to Missouri right out of college to start her news career, living in Springfield first, then Kansas City, where she was chosen as an emerging young leader in the community for Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City’s 18 under 40, and was featured on the cover of the Kansas City Jewish Chronicle.

After seven years in Missouri, she moved to Atlanta to work for CBS46 news. Melissa spent more than a decade in television news, interviewing a wide variety of people from politicians like Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms to Quarterback Patrick Mahomes to Grammy Award winning artists, Ludacris and Sheryl Crow.

She’s covered several protests, elections, and many stories that have helped improve the lives of community members wherever she’s lived. Most notably, while the District Attorney’s office was looking into a local doctor for the unauthorized distribution of drugs, among other things, her investigation led to him surrendering his medical license. After ten years in the news business, she made a career change to focus on PR, marketing, and communications. She joined the largest hotel owners association in the world, The Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA), as the Director of Corporate Communications.

Melissa is a breast cancer survivor and serves on the board for a local nonprofit, “Team Maggie’s Dream,” which helps provide financial assistance for fertility preservation to young adults about to undergo cancer treatments.
When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Jordan, her ten month old baby, Mila, family and friends, traveling, staying active, and trying new restaurants.
