After leaving Ford she accepted a position with the marketing communications firm Versacom, Inc., a supplier for Ford. Her responsibilities included assisting in the creation and editing of promotional materials created in-house, research, creation and distribution of internal collateral materials, and general administrative duties.
The next step in Micallef’s career led her to Olympia Entertainment, Inc. where she worked in the publicity department for seven years. The last position she held with the company was public relations manager.
