Create the Career You Want, Earning More and Working Less

It's time to stop overthinking and feeling stuck. Beyond the Ceiling is a 4 month group coaching program for women in Pharma/Biotech that don't want to settle and instead want to see what they are really capable of.


    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 be the CEO of your career and that takes knowing exactly what you want, stopping the overthinking and confidently standing out as the best.

    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 cutting back your hours and getting paid more.

      Jessica moved into her dream role

      The work with Melissa has led to multiple opportunities fulfilling the career aspirations I've been working towards.

      I have been able to shift my approach to each day. I now know I am better at all facets of my life if I spend time doing things that matter to me and just make me happy.

      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've been in the role since August 2023 and 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.

      here is what to expect in the first 30 days of joining beyond the ceiling.

      You Will:

      + 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.

        Frequently Asked Questions

        Will this work for me, even if I'm at ____level?

        Yes. I have used this process for over 3 years and it works 100% of the time for every level.

        Will you help me get promoted?

        Yes. My clients have gotten up to 40% salary increases by working with me with this process.

        What if I want to start a business? will this help me?

        Yes. No matter what your ideal career path is, I help you achieve it.

        how do you know what I want if I don't?

        When you're stressed and frustrated, it makes your decision confusing but I clear up that clutter to make what you want clear. I have a process that helps you discover what you want in a way you've never done before. It's been tested and proven. It works 100% of the time. It will work for you.

        What if it doesn't work for me?

        I get it. Nothing has worked so far. Many of my clients have this thought too but then they try it and see it does. Your past efforts don't control your outcome here.

        is this a course?

        No. This is live group coaching program with instruction and application during each call and 24/7 support in the private community.

        IS this personalized to me?

        Yes. I coach you directly and walk you through the process for your unique circumstances.

        WHen are the calls?

        Live calls are Tuesdays at 2pm EST and Thursdays at 11am EST. All calls are recorded and a replay is available within 48 hours.

        Our virtual kick-off is March 15th.

        have a question not answered here?

        Send me a message at or better yet, schedule your consultation call.

        If i am in between jobs right now, is this still for me?

        Yes. In fact, now is the perfect time. You have even more time to focus on your growth and development. In our last round we had 2 members join that were part of a layoff and they both secured new roles within 3 weeks. You can't underestimate the power of support and a proven strategy.

        If I don't want to change jobs right now, is it for me?

        Yes! If you're happy where you are, or even if we've worked together 1-1 before, this is the space for you to build your next level skills, make your 3 year development plan, and fast-track your next promotion.

        what happens when I join?

        Once you submit your payment after our consultation call, you will get immediate access to the private portal. Your bonus courses and pre-work for our live event are waiting for you. The pre-work takes about 20 minutes.

        Your materials will be mailed to you and on March 15th we come together to kick-off the program and create your measurable goals for our 4 months together. From there we work together to ensure your goals are met between our weekly calls of training and coaching and through our private community.

        what happens on the consultation?

        I will ask you some questions to learn more about what you want to achieve and confirm you are a good fit. You will have the chance to ask any questions you have so you can also confirm Beyond the Ceiling is a good fit for you. If it is, we will discuss next steps.
