"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 coach with Melissa to anyone who wants to see a change. The investment is totally worth it." (Odette negotiated her ideal leadership role with a new company)

Odette, Director of project management

"Best money I ever spent on myself!"

"Having little job satisfaction to now where I love my job has been a huge transformation! My confidence has grown exponentially. Having a professional, unbiased, and fearless coach to guide me left me better prepared and confident to advocate for myself and started showing up for myself and my team."  (Angie earned 2 promotions and positioned herself to be in a role that didn't exist before!)

Angela, Associate Director Manufacturing Operations

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