After suffering insurmountable personal loss, and grief, Melissa picked back up the pieces and continues to inspire others on how to push through and allow God to make Beauty from Ashes. Her passion is helping others identify their gifts and talents. Encouraging them, in spite of the obstacles, to pursue their passions, and help them to create income producing businesses, so they can live a life they deserve. She continues to teach others how to "shift" their thinking in the 5 main areas of their life, (health/wellness, relationships, spirituality, financially, and mentally) so they can achieve success. She loves performing her own music, sharing her inspirational story at speaking engagements, as well as leading worship and performing for retreats, church and worship services, and even business and corporate events.  She has a unique way of weaving her story and her music  into the teachings of the event, and is flexible to work with agenda of the event as well. "Melissa is easy going, and wonderful to work with. She is beautiful inside and out.  A "real authentic person with talent beyond the norm."  - Randy Frazee, Oak Hills Church, co-Author of The Story
