Melissa Vinden


What are you surprisingly good at?

Connecting with people, as well as understanding the human and practical element to business strategy and taxes.

What are you most passionate about?

I love my family; they mean the world to me. I have been married to my husband for 14 years and we have two wonderful children together.

People and relationships are things I value the most. I enjoy building long-lasting, strong relationships with the people I meet. I guess this is why I love RLB, because People Count!

What’s important inside your community? Are you part of any organizations?

Orangeville has a strong base of volunteers and community groups. For several years, I was on the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors as the treasurer and a general board member.

What do you feel have been the most important successes in your life?

From a personal point of view, the most important successes are my marriage with my husband Paul and our 2 children. From a professional point of view, it has been joining RLB, as I have learned and grown so much and been able to be a part of a team I am proud of.

If you could be a superhero or have a superpower, what would it be?

Like any working mom, I would love a superpower to make me the best mom that my kids deserve. A superpower that gives me more time in my day to do all that is important to my family!

What are your favourite hobbies, sports team, and/or food?

Tzatziki, Tzatziki, Tzatziki! I love a big delicious dish of Greek food! I also love to travel. If only, I could always travel to Greece and eat all the tasty foods there.
