Hi, I’m Melissa
I am a Certified Life Coach, Certified Director of Operations and Marketing. I served as a corporate Director of Operations for 18 years and had to pivot my career after my husband was injured in Iraq serving our country. I instantly became the breadwinner for my family, yet also needed the flexibility to be a full-time caregiver for my husband. Lovingly often referred to as “a force of nature” I am always up for a challenge and turn my biggest obstacles into opportunities. I opened an Etsy shop in 2012, and within nine months grew the business to a top 1% worldwide shop, ranking 1779 of 2.5 million shops! Yet I quickly fell into the survival trap, working seven days a week, spending sleepless nights thinking about payroll, marketing, the never-ending task list, and spending little time with family and friends. I sought after the sweet spot of my business, and made another pivot.
Recognizing the need of small business owners to free up their time and develop systems for their business, I embraced the role of a business strategist. It became my burning desire to help entrepreneurs break free from the struggle of the business that keeps them from enjoying what matters most. As a Certified Pumpkin Plan Strategist, I help business owners to identify their vision and strategy to break out of the survival trap to succeed personally and professionally.
I thrive in helping leaders see their potential, think outside of the box, and dream big! My training as a Chief Question Officer empowers me to bring out the best thinking, collaboration, action, and results using the Q-Work™ Approach, a system that optimizes engagement, productivity, communication, collaboration, innovation, and results for individuals, teams, and organizations.
As the Lead Strategist for Tap the Potential™, I help our family of business owners to free them from the constant demands of a growing business. We believe work supports life, not the other way around. After the first year in our Better Business, Better Life™ coaching program, our clients have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than ever before.
- My husband and I founded a 501(c)(3) organization, Patriots Cove, which provides outdoor events for veterans and first responders, and respite retreats for their caregivers on their 30-acre refuge in Pennsylvania.
- I am the Elizabeth Dole Foundation Fellow for Pennsylvania advocating for the needs of military caregivers. I am a speaker for the military community, often found at military bases, including the Pentagon, organizations, and media outlets.
- I created a remote work course free for military spouses and caregivers, teaching them how to work from home to contribute to their family’s finances.
- When I am not serving my community or coaching, I enjoy painting, reading, decorating, and spending time with my family.
“The obstacle in the path becomes the path. Never forget, within every obstacle is an opportunity to improve our condition.”

Here’s How We Can Work Together:
I’m in business to improve lives.
I empower female caregivers in difficult situations to create opportunities for themselves by defining a new identity and livelihood through remote work training, transition coaching, and community. Using my own experience of overcoming transition trauma to becoming a successful business owner, community leader, and caregiver advocate, I ease the difficulties caregivers face and lovingly enables them to create a braver, bigger life and better relationship with those they care for and themselves. One and together we make an impact.
