Hey y'all! My name is Melyssa with a WHY, lifestyle medicine coach with over 15 years of experience with behavior modification. I wrote my book, Healthy Living Doesn’t Have to SUCK, to teach people how to develop health promoting habits in a sustainable, enjoyable way!
After years of my own personal experience with yo-yo dieting and fitness fads, I finally discovered the power of engaging in health and wellness coaching as a way to overcome all of the other typical, short-lived programs. As a lifelong science geek, the method to my madness incorporates a multidisciplinary, evidence-based approach stemming from lifestyle medicine, positive psychology, and acceptance and commitment coaching.

So if you're looking for a coach that is classy, sassy, and a bit badass-y... Then you're in the right place!
