from my clients
Melissa is one of the most inspiring people I have had the opportunity to work with. She puts a whole new meaning behind the word “Coach”. Melissa is a light, a cheerleader, an accountability partner, a stylist, a confidence builder and confidant. She doesn’t just talk the talk, she walks the walk in the trenches with you. If you are looking to elevate your life, Melissa is worth the investment. There is no doubt in my mind Melissa will help you make the life changes necessary to bring your best self to every aspect of your journey. Working with Melissa has paid exponential dividends for me. Take the leap!
Melissa is definitely a Fashion lifesaver! I was so overwhelmed with figuring out the right looks to bring out who I am in my headshots and she stepped in, at the last hour, and made sure I was prepared for my shoot! The photographer loved every outfit and was so embraced on how I was so organized from my style of jewelry to my choice of shoes. We ended up shooting over 1600 pictures in two hours! And I owe it all to Melissa! Thank you so much for helping me show the real me in my photos and making me feel confident!
Melissa's super power was in complete evidence and she brought exactly what our organization needed. Her compassion is AMAZING! The exercises she brought to Manifest Works touched every single one of us.
Working with Melissa is truly a dream. I’m a curvy girl (5’10, size 14) and it’s sometimes hard to find things that fit me well. I find that a lot of stylists have a hard time understanding my body type and how to flatter it, and Melissa blew me away with how well she did this. I loved how much Melissa took things into her own hands. As a very busy person, I loved that she managed to style out an incredible wardrobe with little to no back and forth from me. She asked the questions she needed to ask and then took it and ran with it. Having a stylist isn’t just for the rich and famous. Using Melissa’s service no doubt saves me not just time but a ton of money that I’d typically spend on ill-fitting low-quality pieces. She is a true expert with a passion for fashion. Her top priority was that I felt beautiful and confident. And DAMN, I sure did!
