Bringing Joy & Vitality to Your Life!

About Melanie

IMG_1012 (3).JPG



I've had a wide-ranging career -- as a career coach, motivational trainer, and educator. I've created and participated in innovative collaborations -- here and abroad -- with wonderful people and organizations. I am a transformational coach, children's book author, & space alchemist! This means I clear negative energy from your space and transform it into a comfortable and productive living and work environment. In addition, I have been trained in Face Reading, with legendary Louise Hay. I also offer life-affirming tarot readings. ​

I received a B.A. in English Literature from the University of San Diego and an M.S. in Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling from San Diego State University. I've also studied internationally as a student in the Honors Program at Oxford University, England, and the University of Madrid. I have completed a year-long Expressive Arts Therapy program and advanced Intuition Strategies training.
