Diversity & Inclusion Employee Spotlight: Melissa Simpson

We are pleased to spotlight IP Administrator Melissa Simpson this month! Melissa works in the Biotechnology Practice and is based in Boston.

How long have you been at Wolf Greenfield?
I have been at Wolf Greenfield for close to 10 years, started here in 2014!

How has being authentic helped you in your career? 
I’ve always tried to build work relationships on a personal level. I think that has helped me be more authentic in my career. If you know who you’re working with you will be able to adapt easier to their working habits. 

What motivates you to wake up and go to work? 
I have made great friends here at Wolf and I have very supportive colleagues and I support an awesome group of attorneys, tech specs, and patent agents. When you have respectable relationships with those you work with it makes it so much easier to get up and go. 

What has been your favorite project/assignment at Wolf Greenfield? 
I always look forward to assisting in the planning of the Biotech Holiday Lunch, it’s always a fun happy event for everyone in our group. 

What is something most people don’t know about you? 
Would you believe me if I told you I am an introverted extrovert? I get major anxiety around large crowds, but also love being around people and laughing and having fun.     

Any last thoughts?
Love what you do, and the rest will fall into place.
