Melissa Reinert

Melissa has been involved with interior design, real estate and creating luxury vacations in Jackson hole for over 10 years. She graduated from the University of San Diego with a degree in Art and Business. Her career kicked off with San Diego Magazine scheduling photo shoots at luxury homes, designing page layouts and selling ad space. She used her sales experience to earn an institutional sales representative position with Pfizer for over 10 years. It was there she learned how to manage a sales team and clients and plan every last detail in launching and selling a billion dollar product.

Over the years Melissa has incorporated her sales experience with her business skills which gave her the ability to start her own company. Her natural intuition to understand people’s needs and their request for privacy launched her into caring for the retreats of second home owners. Break Away was then formed in 2010 taking Melissa’s vision of personalized service, luxury and customer privacy into a reality.
