Spurred on by her peers to share fitness tips when she successfully lost enough fats to spark a transformation journey, Melissa decided to enter the fitness industry and became certified as a Personal Trainer through the American Council of Exercise (ACE). It was then when she also realized that nutrition was very important in maintaining fat loss and gaining muscle mass. Thus, she enrolled into the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, a school that teaches beyond nutrition and dives deep into holistic health theories and concepts.
Since graduating from IIN, Melissa has set up her own coaching business at NourishMel, where she is passionate about helping others kick-start their own voyage into meal preparations, cooking, finding the right exercise and starting a spiritual journey into self-love and acceptance. Melissa trusts that everything we want is already within us and can be manifested through the right means. Besides food, she believes other important and overlooked areas of nourishment include career, relationships, spirituality and physical activity.
