COMPANY

RUBYPRESS, OWNER/FOUNDER

Ruby Press is a boutique PR agency, specializing in lifestyle brands (design, food/beverage, fashion/accessories, and beauty).

MEET MELISSA

I was lucky enough to start my career as a fashion editor in NYC, at Harper's Bazaar and Mademoiselle magazines- back when print was king! I moved to CA in 2000, and was the first Fashion Editor at 7x7 magazine and was a Contributing Editor at Lucky magazine. In 2001, I started my PR agency, Ruby Press. And in 2014, tired of the misconceptions about Oakland, I wrote and self-published a book about the city called "This is Oakland: A Guide to the City's Most Interesting Places".

Q & A

IF YOU COULD JUMP INTO A MOVIE, WHAT WORLD WOULD YOU VISIT?

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, of course!!

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM OFFICE/WORK SPACE?

Ours! We're in the top floor of a historic building in downtown Oakland, CA. It's a light-filled open office so my team and I can laugh together while we work!

WHAT DOES BEING LIBERATED MEAN TO YOU?

It means not having to apologize for juggling a business and motherhood.
