Coach with Melisa

Do you want to solve something simple like figuring out how to

  • create consistent meal plans
  • create and follow a monthly budget
  • create an easy-to-follow system for your daily, weekly, and monthly to-do list

Or, are you ready to tackle something more involved such as

  • creating a plan to reach an important goal, and setting it up in a way that keeps you on track
  • navigating challenges you’re facing at work
  • figuring out your new self-identity

I’ve coached and mentored close to 100 people throughout my career. I have also worked with numerous Fortune 500 companies, to help them create and optimize business processes through technology and change management.

I’ve blended my mentoring and process design background into a personalized coaching experience, one that is geared toward helping you take action.

If you’re someone who is ambitious and open to the occasional tough love, I would love to help you too.

We all want to feel strong, lean and energetic and serve as role models for our kids when it comes to health.  Here are a few of my favorite resources.

Instant Pot

I love making quick and healthy dinners in the Instant Pot.  Do you have one yet?  If so, I’d love to hear about your favorite recipes.  If not, check this out.  It’s so much faster than a crock pot (and always saves me if I haven’t planned ahead, it’s 4pm and haven’t thawed anything…)

Instant Pot Cookbook

I love this cookbook as a companion to the Instant Pot.

​Superfood Nutrition

I love this nutritional system for the whole family.  The boys love the shakes for breakfast and I really like starting their day with a balanced meal.  I use the products to keep my energy high and my cravings low.

If you’re looking for tools and tips to get more organized, this is one of my favorite topics.

Panda PlannerPanda Planner

This is the time of year for undated planners.  One of my favorites is Panda Planner.  It has monthly, weekly and daily pages (the best of all worlds) and is based on the science behind productivity.
