Elizabeth Melamed


I have been in the private investigations industry for the past 10 years. I am very passionate about what I do. I love the fact that I can help people that are in need. In my free time I spend as much of it as I can outdoors with my family and friends. I work hard and play even harder!

I want to always give to the needy. Whether it’s the poor or the poor of heart

What is the biggest challenge you have in your business?

My biggest challenge is to meet deadlines in which I have many. If only I could clone myself!
