Date added: 02/15/2017 OMG Welcomes Melanie Helfrich!


OMG would like to welcome Melanie Helfrich, our new fun and energetic National Sales Manager, to the team! Melanie graduated from the University of Iowa with a Speech and Language Science Degree and received a Masters in Early Childhood Education. Following graduation she started her career as a kindergarten teacher, and while teaching, she began selling jewelry on the side and unlocked her passion for sales. She built up her business as an independent contractor and was promoted within the first year. Within the next few years, the company grew exponentially. Melanie worked with a team of 150-200 active sales people and was responsible for running customer events and training other sales people at corporate events. With the sudden close of the company, Melanie found herself back in a teaching position, but couldn’t shake the feeling that she was meant to work in sales. It’s her passion of sales that introduced her to OMG and the opportunity to help us grow to new heights. We are thrilled to welcome Melanie to the team!

Fun facts about Melanie:

  • LOVES karaoke, but can’t sing

  • Drove a bus in college
