About Melissa

Before we start working together, it's important to get to know me a bit better. Here are a few fun facts about me. I was born in 1982 in Amsterdam, where I lived until I was 38. Then, I moved to a charming little village called Broek in Waterland, just north of Amsterdam.

My dad is Dutch, and my mom is Indonesian. Growing up in a mixed household gave me invaluable skills in communication, empathy, and openness to new experiences.

I'm a huge book nerd and a lifelong learner—it's my biggest passion. Recently, I started playing the guitar in the summer of 2023 and I absolutely love it. I'm also a proud mom to a very cute son and have been with my partner for over 14 years.

Currently, I'm deeply interested in tantra and spirituality. I enjoy reading Tara Brach, Eckhart Tolle, and Jan Geurtz, and I've attended the school of ISTA three times (if you're curious, ask me about it). These influences have made me a more effective coach and educator, both as a sales coach and a relationship coach (yes, that's my other gig).

Ps. I have 8 tattoo's. 

My mantra: life is about the people you meet, and the things you create together.
