About Melissa

Melissa KaestnerI have many roots in media, music, and theatre, as well as a strong passion for all things community. I believe in the power of media, the arts, people, and collaboration when it comes to creating a strong society, whether it is at the local level or beyond.

I live in Ottawa and work as a consultant, office manager, writer, and bookkeeper for a number of local not-for-profit organizations and independent-focused arts-related businesses.

I also collect rocks, roast most of my vegetables, and live for the journey instead of the destination.

You can contact me directly at melissa.kaestner[at]gmail.com. I’m also on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.
