"Melisa is a total rockstar! She helped me get everything organized and truly jumpstart my new career. I was able to accomplish so much in her sessions. Melisa is a phenomenal business coach, writer, connector and creative. She has a way of repackaging your own, sometimes confusing, thoughts in a way that adds meaningful direction for your life. Her uplifting, positive, and fun personality make her easy to open up to and wonderful to work with. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a deeply passionate coach."
ELISHIA/ PERSONAL TRAINER/ SAN DIEGO, CA
"In my first meeting with Melisa, any shred of hesitation was completely squashed within 5 minutes (or less, if I'm being honest)! She understood exactly where I was coming from, calmed my doubts before I could point them out, and was very transparent about the TANGIBLE value her sessions provide. Melisa gives you everything she promises --- a no-nonsense breakdown as to how to grow and avoid some common rookie mistakes. She was and still is extremely supportive as a mentor figure in this community and I would recommend her program to ANYONE who is ready to really start putting work into their success.100% worth the money and time!"

SHAUNA/ MOMMY BLOGGER / SAN DIEGO, CA

SALLY/ AUTHOR/ SAN MARCOS, CA
“If you're overwhelmed by the sight of your clutter and the mere thought of having to tackle it exhausts you, then don't wait any longer and contact Melisa. You won't regret it. I lovingly refer to her as an "energizer bunny" because that pretty much sums up her vibe. After a free phone consultation, I knew right away she was the perfect gal for the job. Overall, she goes the extra mile for her clients and she always takes time to answer your questions. She is worth every penny.”

career coaching reviews
“Melisa whipped out a new resume for me quickly and easily. She hit all the key points I was missing in my job search and I even got hired in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic!”
CHRIS / CONSTRUCTION MANAGER / DIAMOND BAR, CA
“I was stuck working in restaurant management but I knew I always wanted to be in HR. When I was in a job rut, not knowing how to make a career change, Melisa swooped in and created a resume for me that highlighted all the HR duties I’d been doing for YEARS without even really knowing it. I landed a job as an HR manager for a tech company within a month of getting my new resume and I couldn’t be happier. As a single dad, this has made all the difference in my life and career progression.”
KHALID / HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER / PETALUMA, CA
“I’ve always been one of those people that wasn’t quite sure who she wanted to be when she ‘grows up.’ I’ve jumped from industry to industry but never felt like I found the right job. I called on Melisa to help me figure out my next move, with the intent to STAY and become a tenured employee with stability and internal growth opportunities. Her vast connections throughout California led me to an awesome position within weeks of connecting me directly to a recruiter. Full time, benefits, and a flexible work schedule- I couldn’t ask for more!”
ANGIE / PRODUCTION ASSISTANT / CHICO, CA
“As a Java Developer in San Diego, my skill set is prime for the picking. However, I knew I needed the right role that was going to be a cultural fit for me. I’d spoken with several recruiters and staffing agencies but I felt like I was just a number in their spreadsheet of endless candidates. I started working with Melisa to define my exact desires, then lay out a plan to find the role that hit all of my needs. I’m now making multiple six figures, getting paid what I’m worth, and finally in a work-from-home role that allows me to spend time with my family & friends way more than when I was in a company with a bad culture fit. I highly recommend Melisa for anyone that isn’t sure how to break through the noise and for those that want to start figuring out their true purpose & passion.”
