Business Development, Memphis

Sherrie was raised on a farm in Mantachie, MS. Her background includes 24 years at Hancock Fabric (where she built their first website and web store), the University of MS, and the position of Applications Engineer at Konica Minolta. She wanted an opportunity to work at a great company with a higher purpose, and so chose HireQuest Direct after being directed by a very dear friend.

Sherrie enjoys spending time with Anna, her daughter, who is her true inspiration. She also loves singing, oil painting, and the outdoors.

Melissa Murphy

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Melissa relocated to Nashville in 2003. Since that time, Melissa has primarily worked in the music business as a performer and administrative assistant. She has even graced the Grand Ole Opry stage multiple times with her sister, country recording artist Jamie O’Neal.

Melissa decided to expand her career path in 2014 by becoming a licensed Realtor and is beyond thrilled to be a part of the HireQuest Direct team! She loves being outdoors (especially in the Caribbean), cheering on the Seahawks and “singing some country karaoke.”
