My name is Melissa and I’m originally from Dallas, Texas. After moving to Chicago in October 2017, I started my platform “The Social Chicagoan” to help navigate and network my way around Chicago. At first, I started off by promoting other people’s events and then I had the idea to start curating my own (even sell tickets to them!).
From dessert & alcohol pairings (yes, beer and cake pops were a thing ha!) all the way to hosting “The Chicagoan Flea” artisan markets at The Robey Hall 3 months in a row in 2018. I have a passion for small or local businesses and helping people like me just starting out in the amazing city without knowing where to go! I took a minor break in 2019 to plan a wedding and get married, but 2020 it’s on!
This is my current page that is in the process of being finalized, but it is up and running so feel free to give it a look.
