"Coaching with Melissa will change your life from day 1."

"I thought Melissa would just help me figure out the next chapter in my career. She's much more than a Career Coach. I am more empowered, focused, and confident. I recommend coaching with Melissa to anyone who wants SEE A CHANGE: a change in their career, their current role, their company, and/or their relationships."(Odette negotiated her ideal leadership role with a new company)

During your journey with Melissa, she will ask you the tough questions you don’t ask yourself and will challenge you on your traditional ways of thinking but she’ll also equip you with the tools and confidence to get to that next place you want to be. I learned how to reframe expectations, approach situations with a different mindset, and use my strengths to my advantage." (Patty identified her best career move and excelled in her role)

Patty, global supply chain & strategy director

"Best money I ever spent on myself!"

"I am truly mind blown by my progress in just a few months!"

My feelings about my career have completely turned around. I was unhappy, frustrated, burnt out, ready to walk away. Through this coaching process I have found my way again. Investing in ourselves is so important and this process proves why, not only does it have an impact on you, but everyone in your life." (Jenna negotiated her ideal role and earned a promotion!)

Jenna, clinical operations project lead

"I highly recommend working with Melissa!"

We assessed my interest and values and developed a career plan. I incorporated these interests into my role to improve my job satisfaction. I also used the information to transition into a position that more closely aligned with my passions. In addition to solidifying a career plan, she also coached me through navigating challenging relationships and tackling negative thoughts." (Michelle moved into her ideal role with a substantial pay increase)

michelle, translational oncology director

"I now know the value of a stellar Coach!"

I took a more lucrative position and I now have the opportunity to learn an entirely different facet of this industry where I can continue my climb. Coaching gave me an impactful inner voice and helped me to realize that a shift in mindset was a powerful tool, one that I can access and control. That sense of regained control led to a significant reduction in anxiety and an improvement in my work/life balance.
