Melissa genuinely believes that light, beauty, truth and wholeness are inherent in each of us. As a Happiness Consultant, she guides others in connecting with this wisdom and discovering their own inner guru.
Melissa’s diverse range of experiences and skills gift her with remarkable talent in relating to people of all walks of life and seeing their situations with clarity, compassion, and awareness. She is compelled to use her voice in empowering and uplifting others in realizing that we are so much more than our conditions. Being raised in a single-parent home below the poverty level in rural Alabama, Melissa embraced education and became the first in her family to go to college. She then trail-blazed her way to higher education and became the first African-American to earn an advanced degree in the Computer Science and Engineering department at the University of Notre Dame. Melissa went on to have a successful career in high-tech project management in Silicon Valley. She left that career to travel both the external world and the internal. Melissa backpacked around the world for two years, visiting over 40 countries. Her explorations enhanced her awareness of self and others, resulting in a return to school to obtain a graduate degree in Counseling Psychology (specialization: Health Psychology, with an emphasis in mindfulness practice).
Melissa knows that no dream is too big! She shows that we can choose to invite more happiness and meaning into our lives by being in the present moment, living authentically, and just plain having fun.
