One of the worst times in my life was when I lost my job – I was angry, sad, and did not know what to do. Melissa helped me during this time. She’s always been supportive of me and she never said, “you are wrong” if she disagreed, rather made me think of the why behind my actions or thoughts. She has helped me evolve as a person that truly accepts who I am by not falling into the stereotypes that media has deemed acceptable to women. She always actively listens to me, showing her concern, posing questions for me to think of what the real issue is. She has provided so many books for me to read, the most memorable book was the POWER of TED, I learned I always wanted to fix people that I need to be, creator, coach, and challenger. She may not realize it but to me, she exemplifies all 3, she always challenges herself to be better and authentic. She coaches because she truly cares about people’s happiness.
