My Story

Hi, I’m Melissa and I believe everyone deserves to have a life they don’t need a vacation from.

As a master’s trained counselor and a Christian woman, I compassionately help people address the fears they have that hold them back in their career. I shine a light on their worth so that they can own their value and passion. 

I help professionals in healthcare, medicine, and science find the jobs that set them free, allow them to have meaningful impact, and create a life that is beautifully their own. 

But I honestly never expected to be a business owner.

I fell in love with career counseling when I was dealing with the loss of a career I wanted to love but didn’t after committing myself to climbing the ladder of higher education and corporate promotion. 

I realized that I needed a different path and soon saw there were others just like me, others who were struggling to find meaning and impact and passion in their own professional lives. 

Since that time I’ve been helping professionals with their job search strategy and career path plans (9 years!)

I want to help you next. 



When I reached out to Melissa I felt like I had some very clear thoughts of what I did not want in my career based on my experience and some vague ideas of what I really did want. We had an introductory conversation where Melissa’s empathy and relatability shined quickly in her personality and I automatically felt like “this is someone that could understand me!”. She asked me questions that really helped me dig deeper, supported my accomplishments and plan towards my goals thus far and later, provided me with a strong, clear and measurable plan forward to achieve my goals. Feeling like an already very confident individual, talking to Melissa boosted my confidence even more! Thank you and it is such a pleasure that we are connected! 

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Melissa this year during my career search. Melissa enabled me to look at the search in creative ways and to focus on my unique skill set and personal goals. The journey was challenging and Melissa’s positive attitude kept me on track and I landed a new career! She is a great listener and I can confidently recommend Melissa to assist you in your career search.

I have had the pleasure of working with Melissa for over a year. I initially contacted Melissa to help me with my resume, LinkedIn profile and interviewing process. As, I worked more closely with Melissa, I found that she was MORE than a service. She is a career and life coach that helped me “reset” by providing expertise knowledge that was tailored to my needs. She boosted my level of comfort and confidence that helped me to land my dream job! She was instrumental in helping me understand the “why, who and what” behind every question or scenario. I highly recommend Melissa if you are looking for Career Coach that goes above and beyond in meeting your specific needs and LOVES to see you succeed.

Melissa helped me several months ago when I was contemplating looking for a new job. She had a very insightful activity that helped me understand what things I liked and didn’t like about my current role, and helped me identify the most important aspects of a career that I was wanting in my next role (and the aspects that I wanted to avoid). She encouraged me so much. She is very knowledgable and offers great career advice. I highly recommend her services.

Melissa is my career coach hero. She quickly and effectively distilled my career hopes, dreams, wins and losses into tangible feedback and direction which I’m currently utilizing in my job search and interviewing. Melissa is incredibly responsive, provides a ton of value aside from her contracted deliverables and in general, has been a major support system throughout my job search (a generally scary time for most!). I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Melissa and happily referring her to my network.

I can’t say enough about how wonderful it has been to work with Melissa! She lends a gentle and supportive tone and guides you with incredible insight and experience. When Melissa and I had our first call, she asked me questions that helped me unpack what my skills are and what skills I developed while I was at my last position. I am beyond pleased with the collaboration and guidance Melissa has offered me. I highly recommend Melissa and LBD Careers, LLC.
