Ways to Work Together

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

"In early 2021 I took a Sabbatical without having a clue what I was doing. Lucky for me, I started working with Melissa. I thought she’d just help me figure out the next chapter in my career. I quickly realized she’s much more than a Career Coach because to reassess my career goals, I had to reassess all of me – which meant defining goals in my personal life, too. I grew so much!! I am more empowered, focused, and confident.

I recommend coaching with Melissa to anyone who wants to SEE A CHANGE: a change in their career, their current role, their company, and/or their relationships.  The investment is totally worth it.
Coaching with Melissa will change your life from Day 1."

- Odette R., Project Management

"You can't grow if you stay stuck in your own thinking"

"Prior to working with Melissa, I felt completely run over by other people's agendas to the point where I didn't even know who I really was or what I stood for anymore. I now feel more confident and empowered to speak up and to make decisions. I have achieved clarity in terms of a path forward for a viable next career and achieved more balance and overall happiness in my life.

Melissa held me accountable each week and really challenged me in my thinking process. She made me realize that I have a voice in how I live my life. You can't grow if stay stuck in your own thinking. Working with Melissa provides a "nudge", so that we really can see ourselves for who we are and for where we are stuck so that we can get out of our rut and get moving."

- Lorraine S., Medical Affairs

"believe me, this will be the best investment you can ever make in yourself!"

"Before coaching with Melissa I was totally overworked and exhausted. I felt like my life was out of control. I was searching for jobs because I thought it was my only way out. Now I feel passionate about what I do. I am working on high profile projects, being recognized by leaders throughout my organization. Every week I'm learning something new about myself. I feel happier, stronger, and fully empowered. I would highly recommend coaching services by Melissa."

- Urszula W., Clinical Operations

"if you haven't tried coaching with melissa,
try it!"

"I have a clear path to what I want next. I have learned a lot about myself and Melissa helped me make an important decision. I'm looking at challenges, thoughts, and feelings differently. The best part was challenging my thoughts and decisions and helping me understand the "why". If you haven't tried coaching with Melissa, try it. Having someone who is objective and doesn't have any pre-disposed ideas of who you are is like opening a window and letting in the fresh air along with fresh ideas."

- Patty Q., Operations Learning & Development

"I'm now vocal about my workload and what is important to me. i now take rest and celebrate my accomplishments"

"I no longer think I'm not a good enough employee or that I need to change myself. I set boundaries and am able to walk away from work and be okay with it without feeling guilty. Coaching is a difficult process and you may be asked difficult questions that sometimes you don't know how to answer but that pushes you outside of your comfort zone. It changes how you think and handle those situations that cause stress and anxiety and make you unhappy. The best part is you learn how to avoid those situations in the future.

- Darya L., Clinical Project Management

"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 and through this coaching process I have found my way again.  I now have work life balance, spending time on new hobbies and feel like the "what ifs" and "shoulds" have been cleared. Investing in ourselves is so important and this process proves why, not only does it have an impact on you, but on everyone in your life. "

- Jenna B., Clinical Operations

"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 through my decision making and practice real life conversations before they happen left me better prepared and confident to advocate for myself. I started showing up for myself and my team. It's worth the money and if you don't make the investment in yourself, no one else will. Best money I ever spent on myself!."

- Angela S., Manufacturing

"the best investment you can make is in yourself - the return is incredible!" 

"I'm able to ask for what I need, make any decision and build any boundaries I wish to. I'm (now) making time for the things that are important to me. It's ok to listen to myself. It's ok to not want to move up the management track to CEO of someone else's company. I want to help people in my own way, and believe I can! If you're unsure if you should try coaching with Melissa, just do it! The best investment you can make is in yourself - the return is incredible."

- Kate G., Risk Management
