Hi! I'm Melissa
I'm a professional dancer and Nutrition Educator & Wellness Coach based in and serving Washington, DC and the DMV region. My lifestyle-focused method has successfully helped clients achieve personal results and enhance athletic ability, eMpowering performance in class, rehearsals, and on-stage. In my professional experience, I have gained nutritional balance and improved my own relationship with food through many years of practice and a Masters of Science in Nutrition from University of Bridgeport. I bring this depth of personal and academic experience to a variety of clients, particularly dancers + performance athletes.
I strive to support all dancers, both in- and outside of the studio, and I believe that dancers must be valued and elevated for their talent and excellence.
