Calling all women in Pharma/Biotech:

It’s time to have the career you always wanted.

You work hard and can make a bigger impact. Being happy in your career doesn’t require you to work more hours or sacrifice your growth. You don’t have to know exactly what you want. When you work with me you get clear on what you want and build the skills to make it happen. 

Career & Leadership Coaching for women in Pharma/Biotech

Why Coaching?

Unlike a mentor or a typical work training program, coaching with me is the development tool that not only helps you discover exactly what you want, but uncovers your blind spots.  It gives you the perfect combination of psychology and career development that makes your results inevitable.

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.

If that wasn’t enough to get your attention, coaching with me doesn’t only have a huge return on your investment but your results are sustainable. The problem you have when we start coaching will never be a problem for you again.

Real Results:

"Change is scary. Staying put was scarier."

Though I rolled up my sleeves and put a lot of effort into shifting my stubborn mindset, Melissa was the real MVP. Through a series of one-on-one sessions (and homework in between!), Melissa helped me to reframe many of the thoughts and beliefs that kept me from reaching my personal and professional goals, and from being happy at work. I've since earned a position in a company that values its employees and promotes a healthy work/life balance...and I *feel* that shift. I sleep through the night; am able to be more present with my fr-amily; and understand the protective value of the word "no".  

- Cristin H., Project Manager

"I am truly mind blown by my progress in just a few months!"

My feelings about my career have completely turned around. I was unhappy, frustrated, burnt out, ready to walk away and through this coaching process I have found my way again. I now have work life balance, spending time on new hobbies and feel like the "what ifs" and "shoulds" have cleared. Investing in ourselves is so important and this process proves why, not only does it have an impact on you, but on everyone in your life.

- Jenna B., Sr. Clinical Project Manager

"Believe me, this is the best investment you could make in yourself."

I am proud of learning that setting boundaries is ok. Since I did not have a good role model who would teach me this essential skill it was great to learn it through coaching and normalize it as a behavior. I generate more positive and constructive thoughts which impact my behavior and generate better outcomes. If you are unsure about coaching, this is the best investment you will ever make. I hope more women will be able to get the benefit of coaching with Melissa.

- Urszula W., Associate Director, Global Project Mgmt

"I can attest that 1:1 coaching with Melissa has truly been life-changing."

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 fighting against imposter's syndrome and perfectionism and experiencing unprecedented wins every week. Melissa's unique coaching style has completely transformed the way I show up to (and outside of) work. Working with Melissa has helped me become more effective at utilizing my unique talents and traits to drive the impact I want to have in my career.

- Katherine S., Quality Assurance Specialist

"Best money I ever spent on myself!"

Before Melissa, I was a manager in a job I was frustrated with, but of a team I loved and didn't want to leave. Her coaching was exactly what I needed to help me know myself, my strengths, my goals and reset my thinking. Today I am an Associate Director (promoted twice since coaching with Melissa) in a job I love with a team I cherish, and I credit a lot of my growth to my mindset. I have Melissa to thank for that mindset shift and positive change I needed in myself. I have it said it before, and will say it again: Coaching is the best personal investment you can make in yourself.

- Angela S., Associate Director, Technical Operations

"I now set boundaries & walk away from work without feeling guilty."

I no longer think I'm not a good enough employee or that I need to change myself. I learned that I do have some power to change certain situations, how I react to them and deal with them. Coaching is a difficult process and you may be asked difficult questions that sometimes you don't know how to answer but that pushes you outside of your comfort zone. It changes how you think and handle those situations that cause stress and anxiety and make you unhappy. The best part is you learn how to avoid those situations in the future.

- Darya L., Associate Director, Clinical Operations

"My heart is filled with gratitude & 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. Best ROI for investment on self! Thank you Melissa.

- Swathi G., Process Manager

What it Is


Create and implement a proven strategy that is measurable and gets you exactly what you want. We address your goals from a career strategy and psychology perspective so you don't just have the "how", but you prevent failure in implementing them.


My clients get results. Every time. My process and approach isn’t just grounded in science, but is proven to work on 100+ women at every level across the industry from Specialist to Vice President.


No cookie-cutter or generic approaches here. Coaching with me is 100% personalized to you and your unique situation and brain.

You don’t want to settle. So don’t.

You have that voice in your head that tells you there is something more for you. That work can be easier. You can feel valued and make a difference. Turning off work at night shouldn’t be a problem. You can love getting up and going to work instead of hitting snooze for the 3rd time.

You don’t have to settle. You can know exactly what you want (even if you aren’t sure now) and make it happen easily. You don’t have to be like Joe Schmo. You can be uniquely and authentically you, and still get to your next level, have a role you love, be seen as a leader, and shatter the glass ceiling.

We don’t need more of the same. We need you.

If You're Ready to:


Know exactly what you want out of your career


Stop stressing and overthinking, and be clear and confident in the value you bring


Influence and communicate effectively at every level


Have a job you love going to

Then I’m ready to help you create just that.

"Working with Melissa changed my life! This was the best investment that I have ever made."

Yes, It Really Works:

Lorraine discovered her clear path forward

Working with Melissa provides a "nudge", so that we can see where we're stuck, get out of our rut, and get moving.

I now feel more confident and empowered to speak up and to make decisions. I have achieved clarity in terms of a path forward for a viable next career and achieved more balance and overall happiness in my life.

Rachel found her confidence in leadership

This process was so worth it & I'd recommend Melissa without hesitation.

To go from someone who questioned if I could handle this new level in my career to 6 months later feeling like I do now: confident and knowing that what I do next in my career isn’t a matter of capability of what I’m able to do, but knowing I can do anything has made this process so worth it.

Michelle successfully navigated transition

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!
