Melissa is incredible! She has helped St. Philip Catholic School consistently meet and exceed its marketing and fundraising objectives. She is resourceful, creative, and diligent about every project. Our annual campaign has steadily grown due to her initiatives and leadership. Melissa is fabulous to work with as she conveys and shares her many talents.
- Gwen Edwards, Principal, St. Philip Catholic School
Melissa has positively impacted our 5K Run and ArtFest tenfold. We absolutely could not do this event without her expertise, organization, and guidance. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and infectious “can do” attitude is so appreciated. The entire SBEF team loves working with Melissa each and every year.

I’ve been working with Melissa since 2014. It’s been a huge relief having her handle our special event logistics from start to finish. We are a small non-profit, so the time and effort she puts in to our fundraisers has been a lifesaver, allowing me to focus on raising money and running the day to day operations of the office. Melissa has great ideas and a ton of resources to help any event be a huge success!
- AJ Johnson, Executive Director, Positive Coaching Alliance - Houston
Our agency has employed Positive Force Consulting since 2012 to provide a wide array of marketing and communication services. We couldn’t be more pleased with the professionalism, dedication, and passion Melissa puts into her work for us. From designing new business cards, completely overhauling our agency website, and so much more – Melissa has tackled each project by actively listening to our ideas and helping deliver our message perfectly to our clients. We are fortunate to have Melissa as part of our team and we’ve developed not only a strong business relationship but a friendship as well.

I've worked with Melissa since 2016 to put on three 5K races. I can't speak highly enough about her. She possesses fabulous organization skills needed for planning an event. She also has many great contacts that make getting permits, hiring vendors, etc. a smoother process than doing it on my own. Her knowledge of what a race should be and how to accomplish that are excellent, yet she still allows individual organizational ideas to shine through. Melissa does all this with a great sense of grace and humor that are needed for these stressful types of events.
- Mary T Callahan, Executive Director, Girls on the Run Greater Houston
I’ve had the distinct honor and privilege of being Houston’s 9/11 Heroes Run Race Director since 2010. Houston has taken the lead as one of the nation’s largest 9/11 Heroes Runs and our success would not have been possible without the unyielding assistance of Melissa Houser and Positive Force Consulting. I knew early on we needed expert help with planning, logistics, and online registration support, and Melissa was referred to us as “the best”. Her exemplary dedication to achieving a goal and her incredible knowledge-based skill set has proven itself many times over. I am extremely grateful to have Melissa as a part of our team!
