I'm Melanie!

Mom. Teacher. Life coach.  

I am a personal growth junkie who loves

family time, watching people succeed & naps. 

I believe in the power of connection &

I know from real experience that coaching

will empower you to write your own life's story. 

A little about my story..

I have lived through the abrupt & crashing end of a 21 year relationship 

that left me with massive marital debt and the blessing of 3 beautiful kids to raise. 

My 23 year career in education nearly ended due to shifting priorities & levy-dependent budget cuts. 

A back injury left me unable do simple tasks like tying my shoes

without severe pain for 2 years and it took another year to rehab through it.


I can say without hesitation that there is a

truly amazing life after all of these obstacles.

You may not have a choice about what happens in your life,

but you DO have a choice in how you handle it. 

Working with a coach is an ambitious shout-out to the world that

YOU ARE READY to move forward.


 Working with my own coach & coaching people myself has proven to be 

the game-changer for personal growth & success. 

Together we can get you clear about what you want, 

design an ever-evolving plan to get there AND

create a true sense of fulfillment in your life.
