Hi, I'm Melissa.

I understand what it’s like to feel frustrated with the way you look and feel -- I’ve been there! 

In fact, when I was pregnant with my first child I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. It was a low point in my life, yet I was determined to overcome my health challenges and live life to its fullest. After learning about functional medicine, I was able to heal my cancer, lose weight, and ultimately feel better. I learned so much about my body and how to take good care of myself and my health in the process!

Today, I am on a mission to help others live healthier lives. Our health is the foundation for our lives. If we have a good health foundation we can thrive in our life. I want you to thrive!

Since beginning the Life Wellness Lab, I have guided hundreds of clients through my program with life-changing results. I have well over 15 years of experience working in the healthcare field and specialize in metabolic health, hormone, and blood sugar dysregulation related to weight issues, energy, and mood.

Ready to feel your best?


Metabolic inflexibility is both the underlying driver of health issues.  Reestablishing metabolic flexibility will stop the vicious cycle. With the metabolic reboot plan, a new cycle will start that will allow your body to heal to feel good and thrive. 

Ready to lose weight, feel your best, and take control of your health? 

Let’s work together!  In my customized group programs, the women I work with can lose between 10-25lbs in 21 days. AND, all women leave my programs feeling more energetic, more confident, and have the tools to maintain this healthy lifestyle in their day-to-day lives.
