Melissa Conventry, MBA & MSc
Iím incredibly excited to be a part of Integris Wealth Management. I love working with a team to help other people. It is incredibly rewarding to assist our clients in achieving their goals.
Initially, I started out as a protein chemist doing primary research for a pharmaceutical company where I worked on the first drug ever developed for multiple sclerosis (MS). During my tenure there, I co-published two papers before I moved on to the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine where I received my masters in biomedical sciences (a combination degree in physiology, pharmacology, and cell & molecular biology). My masterís degree cemented my training in analysis, statistics, and modeling.
Shortly thereafter, I received my MBA with a specialization in International Finance and Strategy from the Monterey Institute of International Studies. My original intention was to dive into marketing in the international biotechnology industry. However, I found an unexpected passion for finance and entrepreneurship that lead me to working as a consultant for businesses looking for startup and expansion capital. I worked with a number of companies in greatly varied industries-agricultural, HVAC, construction, jewelry, hospitality, restaurants and more. This time helped me develop both my big picture strategy as well as hands-on tactical execution of business projects.
With this experience, I eventually decided it was time to start my own business and have owned three. First, I started a craft and hobby manufacturing business. This business quickly became one of the top companies in its niche, organically generating a first-page google search listing. Next, I started a 3M distributorship, and finally, co-owned a winery with my husband of over 20 years, a local winemaker. I also have two teenage boys which means that every day is an adventure.
My family and I are passionate about being active within the community. We are involved with local homeless charities and can often be found making meals for food insecure families.
