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 body from 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.

I want to help people who haven’t found relief in the trendy, formulaic health solutions and need a caring, dedicated, and determined practitioner to dig deep and go the distance with them.

My mission is to be a part of the new healthcare paradigm, combining talents, which provide an educational platform with tools for my clients to take back their own health.

Conventional medicine recognizes the symptoms of a client and usually offers a pharmaceutical prescription to alleviate or reduce their symptoms, but rarely looks at the root cause. Expensive healthcare is a global crisis. We pay more and get less every year. I am on a mission to radically improve how healthcare works and help others live healthier lives. 

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.  I am a health care counselor, specializing in functional medicine nutrition, and hormonal and metabolic health.

My clients are intelligent and smart and have tried a lot of different programs to improve their health and yet find themselves not knowing what to do next as nothing seems to be working for them. 

I guide them through science-based protocols which educate them on what is going on in their own body so they can make choices based on the information they learn.

My programs are relatively lower in cost than other out-of-pocket programs. I would like to offer a healthcare option at a lower cost, with improved results, and make quality care available.

In health we shine,

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.
