Melissa Soto is the District Sales Manager at the Coca-Cola Bottling Company and a 2011 graduate of University of Findlay's marketing program. She transferred to UF from Owens Community College prior to earning her degree.

During Melissa's time at Owens, many 4-year colleges and universities visited campus to recruit students. Soto explained that the University of Findlay offered a seamless transition of her credits from Owens, and she didn’t have to repeat any classes.
