Meet Your Sign Source Team
Roe Galati – Owner
A tough girl from New York born with a Southern heart, Roe lives by the motto “If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life”. After graduating from the State University of NY at Oswego with her Bachelors, Roe moved to Manhattan and worked for an international retailer for 5 years traveling the Northeast and then picked up one day and moved south to be
closer to her sister. There she found herself with a new career in Property Management where over 11 years she climbed the ranks from Leasing Consultant to Operations Director. One day fate called, and she took the leap to work at Sign Source and as they say the rest is history.
After 6 years of being an employee at Sign Source she answered the next knock on the door from fate and became Owner. Her passion for creativity and customers shines through everything she does. Roe lives in Summerville, SC with her supportive husband Chris and their energetic twins Addie & Ethan. She loves all things Disney, Yankees and traveling but her true joy is in music and laughter. You can find her in her spare time at the ballfield playing Team Mom and giving back to the community with many organizations throughout the Lowcountry.
Patrick Mehlfelt – Print Specialist
Originally from southern Maryland, Patrick moved to Charleston in 2013 after traveling the country for a few years following high school. He received a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in graphic design from the Art Institute of Charleston and started working at Sign Source a couple of years later. He fills his days with fossil hunting, surfing, and being creative. Patrick has an amazing sense of humor and a super quick wit.
Jen Harrell – Office Manager
Jennifer grew up in the Charleston area in Hanahan at the house she spent her entire
childhood, where her parents still live. After high school, she decided to take accounting courses at Trident Technical College. Her passion was traveling to new places and meeting new people. She moved across the country to California and traveled for six years. She eventually moved back to Charleston and worked in Food and Beverage for many years. After hanging up her bottle opener, she and a partner bought the longest-running Volvo repair shop in Charleston which she ran for over 10 years.
She has been the Office Manager for Sign Source since 2012. She enjoys working with such amazing clients and coworkers. After meeting so many people around the world, it is crazy that she ended up marrying her first-grade boyfriend, Chris, and living where she grew up.
Brian Bailey – Production Manager
Brian Bailey is our Production Manager. Originally from Nashville, TN, he has been with the company since moving to the Lowcountry in 2017. Brian is married to his wife Natalia, and they met working at Sign Source. You can always find him at the shop with his dog Nico. When not making signage, Brian enjoys making a wide variety of specialized items from furniture to fine art.
Tyler Crawford – Master Sign Maker
Tyler has been making signs for over a decade! He is a South Carolina native; born and raised here in Charleston. He is passionate about home improvement projects and can build pretty much anything! Tyler currently is enjoying raising his small flock of chickens, which are named after dipping sauces. If you are looking for an intellectual conversation on just about anything, Tyler is your guy!
Tom Hopson – Design & Production
Tom graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1994 with a degree in Graphic Design. He has been with Sign Source 23 years as their Lead Sign Designer for their National Division to work with clients and help bring their vision to light with design concepts. Along with design responsibilities, he runs the plotters, large format printers and CNC router and helps with production and installs.

Sallie Wall – Lead Designer
Sallie grew up in Orangeburg, SC though some of her favorite childhood memories
were made out on her family’s farm in Cameron. After graduating from Clemson
University with a degree in Graphic Communications, Sallie made the move to
Charleston to start her career as a Graphic Designer and has been with us at Sign
Source since 2014. She also coaches 5th & 6th grade girls’ basketball, having been
immersed in athletics her whole life. On the weekends, you can find her creating
art, gardening, or out on the water somewhere. She loves spending time with her
husband, Austin, and her beloved rescue Labrador, Lyna, who acted as the office’s
alarm system and security department for many years.
Hunter Knapp – Installer
As a part of our installation team Hunter is super helpful being raised in the Lowcountry and knowing the lay of the land. After attending the Citadel here in Charleston back in 2016, Hunter realized he wanted to get out of academics and go straight into the work force and decided trade work was what he wanted to do. After working in the electrical, automotive and transportation fields he came to our team and brings these renaissance trades to our team’s daily workflow. Hunter is a doer and never turns down a task. His hobbies include painting, building and loves to fine tune his gamer skills in his spare time.
Jim Marazita – Production Guru
Jim is our Sign Source cryptid. Not much is known about Jim, other than his favorite McDonald’s order, which we use to lure him to the paint booth to custom paint each sign. It is rumored that Jim is 8’ tall and appears blurry in photos on purpose. When asked to describe himself, Jim’s response was “trying to describe myself is like a mosquito biting an iron bull.”
Caitlin Smith – Install Coordinator
Caitlin moved to Charleston in 2017 from Savannah and started working at Sign Source in 2019. Her favorite things are quiet rainy days on the couch playing video games and eating snacks with her dogs. She loves making people laugh; the lamer the joke, the better! Her one work wish is that she could text her dogs memes throughout the day and tell them things like “this is so you”!
Jeremy Weber – Lead Installer
Jeremy turned in his gloves and coats two years ago when he came to us from Minnesota. The first thing he did after landing in Charleston was get a job at Sign Source and he never looked back. Jeremy finds humor in pretty much every situation and his hard work and dedication to his job show in every install. It is safe to say if there was an award for “Most Complimented Employee” from our clients, he would win it no contest! With every client interaction and team request Jeremy will always go above and beyond.
