Welcome to
Beyond the Ceiling

The industry can make it difficult for women to advance, which is why you need a different approach.

You need to know exactly what you want, stopping the overthinking and instead use a proven process to have your dream job coming to you.

In Beyond the Ceiling this is what we do. You get clear on what you want and have a custom step-by-step plan to make it happen. All while improving your current work situation.

My Process was made for women in pharma/biotech

Erin got her dream job, a raise, and sign-on bonus

 I know what role is right for me. I know I’m exactly where I need to be now.

I was very undecided in my career and looking to others to help me decide what was best for me. I was used to making career choices based on what was presented to me rather than spending time to figure out what I really wanted.  Through coaching with Melissa, I now have confidence in my decisions and my career. 

Odette found her best ROLE and GOT PROMOTED

I recommend coaching with Melissa to anyone who wants SEE A CHANGE.

I thought she’d just help me figure out the next chapter in my career. I quickly realized she’s much more than a Career Coach. I grew so much!! I am more empowered, focused, and confident. Coaching with Melissa will change your life from day 01.

michelle had a role created for her and got a raise

Working with Melissa has helped me to gain focus in my career path.

I also found greater job satisfaction and used the information to transition into a position that more closely aligned with my passions. Melissa also coached me through navigating challenging relationships and tackling negative thoughts. I highly recommend working with Melissa!

Brena went from laid off to dream job in weeks

By week two or three of the program, I was already getting an offer.

Melissa is amazing. I love the fact that the Beyond the Ceiling program really creates a structured environment with very unique input. There are so many tips and tools that you give us. There is so much information available in that that I had never even considered. I didn't even realize people would negotiate in the ways that you taught us about.

This is a community that's simultaneously exploring, improving themselves, and really helping to hold ourselves accountable to self-improvement, learning more about ourselves, and being bold in a way that helps us to attain our goals, where we realize what we are capable of, and it really helps us define where it is that we can go and realizing it's in our own hands. 

It's a mind blowing revelation of self-improvement. I'm confident in my decision making. I'm carrying myself differently as I talk to my own core leadership in the company. Both my CEO and my direct manager have seen the idea of leadership potential in me. I never considered the idea of having something catered to what I I want to be doing. I'm literally getting the ability to do all of the things I've asked.  I have more energy to hang out with my kids. My husband has noticed a huge difference. I can only go up from here.

Let's break it down

How you will go beyond YOUR ceiling


measurable goals and progress evaluations

We Start with a Kick-Off Event

We kick off the program with a live virtual event where you will immediately shift your approach and get solutions to the problems you are experiencing right now. You will leave the kick-off with your measurable goals for the 4 months so you know exactly what you will achieve and how you know you've actually achieved it. You learn how to evaluate your progress and always know how to pivot as needed to ensure you're on track.


Know exactly what you want

Your Career Protocol

You will be guided through my Career Discovery process to build your unique Career Protocol. This will tell you exactly what you want, what level and company to go for, and take away all of your doubt in your next step. You will stop guessing. You will know all of your options, apply only to the right jobs, and be confident in your career direction.


work less and be more influential

Role Success Skills

It's time to shut out the unnecessary work and career trainings and focus on the only skills you need to make work easier now and help you grow and advance your career. You will communicate effectively at all levels with confidence and build the skill of influence. This will help you get what you want at your current job and position you to have dream job offers for your future.


earn more and get your dream job

Industry Disrupt Strategy

Long gone are the days of spending endless hours applying to jobs hoping to get a call back or hoping your boss gives you a chance. Instead, you have a step-by-step plan to get your dream job. Even if the role doesn't exist now, we will have it created for you with an easy yes from stakeholders. No money will be left on the table and you will advance as a woman in Pharma/Biotech with my

Christina got certain in her career path

You make sure everyone feels included and has the opportunity to be heard.

I have really loved Beyond the Ceiling! I've gotten such meaningful support from you and the other women in the community; I've felt a genuine connection with the group; I definitely had some vulnerable moments, which was initially stressful, but looking up to see everyone nodding in support and validation gave me such a sense of belonging. 

Angie had her dream job created for her  & 2 promotions

Coaching is the best investment you can make in yourself.

I was a manager in a job I was frustrated with but a team I loved and didn't want to leave. Today I am an Associate Director (promoted twice since coaching with Melissa) in a job I love with a team I cherish.

Tugba got a promotion & moved into people management

Working with Melissa has changed my life!

As soon as Melissa assisted me to alígn my goals with my values and passion, all the synchronicities worked together and that dream job found me like a magic. Through her empowering sessions, I was able to onboard in my new role succesfully, lead my team with confidence and start delivering results in record time. 

Jen wrote her own job description and moved into a new role after her leadership told her no.

You are truly a great coach. I recommend you to anyone who is looking for Career Coaching.

I had the opportunity to write a job description for a new role that would support closing business critical gaps in my organization that also leverages my strengths and passion for strategy deployment and people development. I LOVE IT!.”

How is this different?

Working hard and having an advanced degree won't get you promoted or the recognition you deserve.

You need a strategy that is specific to the industry, custom to you and that is proven to advance women in Pharma.

You aren’t learning how to have someone else’s career. You are creating your own path.

You aren’t taking a generic approach that worked for Joe Schmo and applying it to you. We are personalizing your plan to walk you step by step to where you want to go.

Worried you’ll screw it up? You can’t. 

My process works 100% of the time on every person at every level.

We are uncovering your blind spots and improving the way you think while building your professional skills and implementing a proven strategy to get you the career you want. No more self-sabotage or outdated advice.  Only tools and strategies that work. 

in just the first 30 days:

+ know exactly what needs to stay the same and what needs to change

+ work less hours while increasing your output

+ advocate for yourself and start prioritizing yourself and your needs

+ feel more confident in your value and your career 

i want this

Whatever you decide you want, you can create

Patty got clear and got promoted

Don't hesitate to hire Melissa as your Coach.

 I didn’t know what to expect. But over several months, we worked together to clarify goals (both work and life) and better understand my strengths and work styles. In turn, I learned how to reframe expectations, approach situations with a different mindset, and use my strengths to my advantage. 

Katherine got a new job and a promotion

Working with Melissa has helped me drive the impact I want to have in my career.

I used to fear the unknown but now, I embrace new possibilities. I used to be chronically indecisive; now, I make decisions with ease and with confidence in my intuition. I am experiencing unprecedented wins every week. Melissa's unique coaching style has completely transformed the way I show up to (and outside of) work. 

Sue started her own business

I gained the confidence I needed to quickly establish several consulting agreements.” 

I had rather low self-esteem at the beginning of coaching and could never have imagined myself as a consultant. I'm now working independently as a consultant - I get to work with different companies with completely different projects, I'm learning a lot and I'm more enthusiastic about my work. Coaching helped me see that I do have the skills and knowledge to excel at what I do.

Swathi transitioned from lab to management

Best ROI for investment in myself!

My heart is filled with gratitude and deep gratification that I took the leap of faith with the career coaching process. Working with Melissa, I now understand my work style, and equipped with the tools to be effective with other work styles; know my anchor points for success in the chosen career path; successfully transitioned into business and management space with great excitement for what is to come.
