Meet Nurse Coach Melissa

Registered Nurse, Board Certified Nurse Coach & Functional Medicine Practitioner

    After struggling with undiagnosed autoimmune thyroid disease for several years,  I learned how powerful nutrition and lifestyle can be for reversing disease symptoms.  I utilize my clinical and personal experience to help clients recover from chronic disease symptoms and enjoy life again. 

   In my practice, I take a root cause approach to wellness and understand healing is not just physical but mental, spiritual, emotional and environmental. I serve clients virtually nationwide and also see clients in person in Franklin, TN.

Thanks to Melissa’s coaching, I have been motivated to reestablish healthy routines such as regular exercise, a healthier diet, and focusing on a positive mental attitude. Her   unique perspective, particularly about various healthy foods--what to eat and what to avoid--provided me with new information that will help me improve my health even more. Melissa's encouragement and cheerful attitude made me want to try harder and do better for the next meeting


I would recommend Melissa to anyone dealing with any number of health issues. More specifically, anyone dealing with an autoimmune disease. Based on my experience as well as others I know it can be possible to get free of many medications that only create the illusion of healthiness. With her help and resources along with a proper Functional Medicine Doctor it can be possible to achieve a high level of health without the need of drugs.

I learned a lot of information about my condition that I did not know.  Information from recent studies and some things to try to make me more comfortable as I heal. 


I felt more confident knowing I could ask a nurse questions as I needed to and did not have to wait until my next appointment six months from now with my Dr.  She could address most of my concerns as they came up.  If it was something for my Dr. to address, she would say so and encourage me to reach out to him.


If you are newly diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and don’t know where to start, Melissa can really help you.  If you need someone to walk with you for a time, short or long, Melissa is for you.  If you need someone to help keep you on track, Melissa can do that too. I highly recommend her coaching services!"

~Jeannetta H. 52, TN


I have been dealing with weight loss resistance and other complications from Hashimoto’s disease for nearly a decade but never made any meaningful progress until I started working with Melissa.


She wears many hats in her practice-- patient advocate, cheerleader, educator, symptom detective, and supportive coach who meets clients where they are in their wellness journey.


I wish I had found her years ago and would encourage anyone struggling with their health to invest in themselves by partnering with her for coaching.
