It's time to take back control of your health!

As a functional medicine nurse health coach, I help you discover what your unique body needs to function at its highest potential so that you can feel energized and comfortable in your body.

You want to feel better, 

but where do you even begin?

Because right now, you’re:

  • craving a good night’s rest
  • struggling to make it through the week
  • frustrated with your bloated, irritable gut
  • fed up with your lack of progress
  • wanting to eat better
  • waking up feeling exhausted
  • sick of the hormonal roller coaster ride
  • aware that something is “off” with your body

The good news? it DOESN’t have to be like this!

I'm here to support you as you regain control of your health.

Hi! I’m Melissa!

I know firsthand what health can do for your mind, body, and spirit.

I am a childhood cancer survivor. As a result of conventional treatments, I struggled with illness and side effects to the point that I was sick more often than healthy.

Diet and lifestyle changes have enabled me to reverse almost every health issue I had, including putting Hashimoto’s into remission and coming off all medications.

I am passionate about empowering other people so that they can achieve the same healing results!

For the first time in my life, I got REAL answers!

First of all, FIVE STAR experience, no questions asked! I have had unanswered health issues since I was a little girl. Growing up, we went to all the top pediatric clinics and no one could give me any answers as to what was truly going on with my gut. By early adulthood, I had been on what felt like millions of “band-aid medications” treating symptoms, but never the real root problem. After a scary stomach attack episode (as my husband & I call it), we finally decided it was time to take a new approach & get to the bottom of the problem.

Towards the end of 2021, I took the leap to work with Melissa & WOW! After 1 session with her, she recommended I do a handful of tests. My mind was blown when the results came back! I had done many of these tests before, BUT this is where I learned the difference between Functional Medicine & Western Medicine. For the first time in my almost 28 years of living & suffering with unexplained health issues, I got REAL answers! We discovered I had Hashimoto’s, food allergies/sensitivities, vitamin & mineral deficiencies, & leaky gut. I also learned that this could be the reason my husband & I have not been able to conceive yet.

We are now 6ish months into my healing journey with Melissa and since addressing issues like my vitamin & mineral deficiencies, inflammation, and food allergies, I have had all sorts of issues heal themselves. I no longer have crippling anxiety, random panic attacks, bruises showing up out of nowhere, brain fog, or extreme exhaustion. It’s amazing how our bodies compensate for being out whack! My family was so astounded with my results that they also started working with her. Once we get my health to a stable point, my husband will be working with her as well to see where his overall health is as well.

I continue to work with Melissa as she continues helping me heal my body as a whole & reach my personal health goals.  Fingers crossed that we can take the next step and focus on a fertility plan soon! We will forever be grateful for what Melissa has done & continues to do for us. She is truly an inspiration of what taking back your health can do for you. Her drive, passion, kindness, patience & GIANT realm of knowledge are just a few of my favorite things about her. I would HIGHLY recommend the investment. I promise, you WILL NOT regret it. Thank you, Melissa, from the bottom of our hearts!

holistic healthcare concept with stethoscope, natural ingredient supplements, and pills

Western/Conventional medicine is great for trauma and emergency situations.

But it’s failing many people in the areas of disease prevention, informed consent, over-prescribing medicines, getting to the root cause of illness, managing chronic disease, and recommending appropriate diet and lifestyle changes.

This is where functional medicine comes in… and this is where I can help you!

Have you experienced one of the following scenarios?

  • You go to your doctor with several nagging symptoms. Your doctor orders basic lab work and insists that “everything looks normal”. You’re given a prescription for medication to treat the symptoms.
  • Your labs were abnormal, but instead of digging deeper and working alongside you to figure out the root cause, your doctor simply prescribes medication.
  • You’ve been placed on medication for one issue, but end up with several additional issues as a result of the medication’s side effects. 

This type of medical model is BROKEN. It won’t get you through life feeling your best, but instead simply helps you survive.

You’re meant for so much more. My goal is to help you THRIVE and live the life that you deserve!

What is a nurse health coach?

Nurse health coaches listen deeply and spend a lot of time with you to understand your unique needs. We don’t give you ‘orders’ like a doctor would. Instead, we help you realize your inner wisdom, strengths, and the possibility to seek and act on your needs. This approach enhances your ability to care for yourself and accomplish your health goals.

Nurse health coaches are supportive mentors and wellness authorities that will work alongside you to help you feel your best through diet and lifestyle changes. Our clinical expertise includes an understanding of both the science of the human body—in both disease and healthy states—and the daily health challenges that many people are living with. We are fierce advocates for all things related to you and your health. We do not diagnose or offer treatments.
