About me

Things have really changed in this day and age! Born in the sixties and raised by loving and caring parents that were strict but also encouraging, fostered Doc Mel's empathetic nature. Her upbringing was rooted in embracing the mind, body, & spirit. This gave her confidence to weather many storms and navigate her sails successfully in all aspects of her life! As a college professor she observed how some students entered her class without fundamental knowledge related to building their inner-core & self-esteem. She always wanted her students to have a true understanding of the significance core values can have on their code of conduct, especially when guided by a moral compass. So, she felt compelled to teach with an emphasis on "daily living" and her engaging approach was oftentimes considered raw & uncut! With her students encouragement she began to expand her reach beyond the classroom, creating a podcast "Actuality Talk!" and a talk show "Doc Mel Talks!" Having a Ph.D. in Social Work gives her the theoretical frame of reference needed to provide the advice and insight that she gives. Doc Mel's guidance and encouragement as a life coach heals, restores and creates paths that are new. Her expertise is in helping people deconstruct to reconstruct their lives!
