Melissa Doman is a master's level psychology and coaching expert, engagement facilitator, writer, and globetrotter. Melissa has three goals in life: - Help others become the most fulfilled and optimized versions of themselves through personal/professional development - Travel the world to see new cultures and meet new people (33 countries visited & many more to go!) - Live life like somebody left the gate open and with intention. Her biggest passions include: employee coaching, educational public speaking, personal/professional development, emotional health, creating fulfilling workplace cultures, achieving lifestyle balance, and personal growth through travel. Living and traveling abroad truly changed Melissa and influenced how she experienced the personal change process and the human condition. She has lived abroad twice in South Korea and Australia and traveled internationally to 30 countries. Those experiences ultimately inspired her to pursue a Master of Arts in Psychology (with a specialization in counseling/coaching), work and lecture in the field of psychology and human development, and start her additional passion of writing about personal/professional development and mental health. Over the past 7 years, Melissa's coaching/counseling, public speaking, and digital writing careers have grown tremendously as she has written and delivered workshops for many organizations on a variety of topics. These focus areas include: personal/emotional development, stress management, career development, mental health, authentic living, mindfulness, employee well-being, increasing productivity, lifestyle balance, goal-setting, and resiliency during major transitions. Melissa has been featured as a subject matter expert on these topics in a variety of settings, including The Wellness Club at Whole Foods. She has also the opportunity to work in the digital health sector and use her background in psychology to help improve the user outcomes of digital behavior change programs. Some of Melissa's writing & consultancy projects have included providing digital communication content development for a variety of organizations and strategic workshop development guidance.
