A bit more about Melissa in her own words:

"I worked in the film industry for many years before moving into the tech sector. I know the experience of trying to keep up in industries that are fast paced, competitive, in addition to being one of the few women in my workplace I was constantly in hustle mode, not asking for what I needed, not taking care of myself and the result was I struggled with depression, anxiety, overwhelm and habits that were dragging my system down. This completely changed when I discovered the world of coaching and went through my own transformative process.

Now I help creative professional women fully embody their life purpose, power, voice, uniqueness and beauty so they can stop disconnecting from their bodies, settling for less than what they’re worth, and perpetually being in hustle and grind mode.

By holding a compassionate, loving space and with the powers of TCM (Transformational Coaching Method) and intuition I help my clients move away from vices - whether it’s emotional eating, that nightly vino, overworking or those stubborn limiting beliefs and ego that keep them from being bringing to life their empowered potential."
