Advanced Energy is excited to welcome Melissa McDuffie as an information systems specialist. Melissa is from Chester, South Carolina, and earned a degree in software and information systems from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
She joins Advanced Energy most recently from York Technical College, where she served as systems support specialist. Before that, she spent 20 years at PPG Industries, beginning as a production technician and then transitioning to a more IT-centered role.
Melissa moved to North Carolina just a few months ago, when her husband transferred to the state for his job. When she saw the opening at Advanced Energy, it looked promising. She liked the smaller size of the organization and that it is a nonprofit.
In her new position, Melissa is supporting most of the computer systems at Advanced Energy. So far, she has been administering software programs, troubleshooting issues and coordinating with third-party vendors.
Outside of work, Melissa likes to focus on health and wellness, and she serves as a personal trainer.
Melissa’s prior experience and her passion for learning and helping others — she has always been interested in how things function and how to fix them — make her a great fit for Advanced Energy, and we are excited to have her contribute her knowledge and expertise.
