The effortless ride to retirement was not to be the case. Encountering her own crisis of direction led her to a personal journey of questions. Finding Your Coach: Diving Deep Within is her result of that personal journey.

On this new quest, with the tables turned, the discovery and genuine affection for questions began to take hold of her thought process. On her way, she encountered thought leaders, cutting edge personalities, and experts in their field. With so many exceptional offerings, how was she not fully engaging? What was keeping her from the answers to the universe she not only wanted but was asking for?

Changing and challenging the narratives we have grown up with while appreciating some of the colloquialisms and wisdom of her elders, brought a new approach to the same issues of the ages. Her work is the beginning of a conversation on our fulfillment, success and happiness.

Melinda resides in Los Angeles, California, where she still volunteers. She is available for speaking, interviews and consulting.

“Dance above the surface of the world. Let your thoughts lift you into creativity that is not hampered by opinion.”
