The Journey

 Melissa is a Certified Professional Coach, Speaker, Trainer and Mentor with 30 years business experience inside the insurance industry working with businesses and individuals to achieve goals through proven techniques. Her professional experience in sales, training, process improvement and business building gives her a unique perspective on business.  Melissa’s maintained her insurance licensing throughout her career and has mentored others getting their licensing. Her never ending belief in guiding people to achieving their goals has been a constant through her entire career. 

Melissa has always had a thirst for learning that still continues today and is one of her favorite past times.  As a 5 star coach she’s always reaching for the next learning opportunity to serve her clients better. 

Melissa has overcome many adversities in her life.  She began her journey into adulthood as a teen-mom who was determined to make a great life for her daughter.  She pushed through her education while working and was able to achieve a satisfying career to provide for her family.  

More challenges followed Melissa with her brother who suffered from bipolar disorder, and later chronic physical health issues.  Melissa became proficient in handling the crisis that often arises in these situations and was able to be a strong guidepost for her family in times of need.  Unfortunately her brother’s health did not improve and Melissa had to guide her parents through the process of pre-planning his  final arrangements and be the ever steady presence as he entered hospice in his final week.  Although these experiences were often painful, Melissa found comfort in her ability to handle the logistics for her loved ones.  

Blessings came in disguise for Melissa with the unexpected pregnancy of her own daughter.  Circumstances as they were, Melissa wound up and is continuing to raise her first grandchild.  She turned that into an opportunity for her to learn to coparent with her daughter and maintain stability for her granddaughter.  She’s grateful for her daughter who’s been an amazing partner in this journey. 

As an adoptee she’s always been fascinated with nature vs nurture and our experiences related to that.  About 1990 she began her quest to find her birth family, pre-internet genealogy searches her determination and ability to network gave way to success.  She was reunited with her birth family and was able to learn even more about herself and how our genetics affect who we are in combination with our upbringing.  Melissa believes you are not “just” who you were born, but that you can create and become anyone you choose.  

Melissa’s ability to encourage and inspire with her unending practical positivity gives her the ability to follow her dream of helping others achieve and create a life they love.
