Her home town of Echuca is still where her heart is.
Name: Melina MacNellie
Your role: Branch Manager
Region: Mitchelton, Queensland
What’s your story?
I am a Brisbane girl and very much a people person. More specifically one that aims to inspire others to be the best they can be personally and professionally.
I am passionate about helping others reach their full potential and creating future leaders. In 2011, I decided it was time for a career change after 8 years in property and landed myself a role at NAB as a Customer Adviser.
How have you made a difference?
I have made it my duty to ensure I give back to the business that has backed me for the past 6 years. I make it a priority to contribute to community events each year. Most recently, I worked with Mates4Mates to fundraise so they can continue to help our Defence Personnel in need of support. As mentioned earlier, I am passionate about helping to develop future leaders and this year I co-facilitated the Brisbane North Leadership Academy. Over the past 18 months, I have supported and backed three members of our team into leadership roles and I’m proud of everything that they’ve achieved so far.
What are you passionate about?
Those who know me will know that I am passionate about Women in Business. I hope to inspire other women in the workforce. More specifically helping young mums reach their full potential by developing themselves and their careers whilst balancing time with their children.
Quality time with my family is what energises and motivates me to keep going and striving to be the best I can be.
