 Meet Melissa

In my "vanilla" life, I had been a freelance photojournalist in a long established, successful career. About 15 years ago, I was hiding out in depression which culminated with the difficulty of finding steady paid shoots and I resented making less money every year. I felt numb, soothed myself with junk food and left my long term partner a few months before our wedding, moving across the country to "find myself" and make a fresh start. I was introverted, shy and lonely, so I threw myself into the online dating pool to find love but found myself drowning. I was also finanially scraping by. I knew needed to start my life over and do something that challenged me to my core.


Make yourself a cup of tea, pull up a chair and take a deep breath....let's introduce ourselves over the phone so I can understand your personal challenges, goals and how you see us working together.
