Welcome to Joy Health and Wellness!


I’m Melanie. My main roles are Wife, Mom, Professional Chauffeur, Mediocre Cook and Memory Maker Specialist.

My health and wellness journey sure has had its ups and downs. I have always struggled with my weight and anxiety. Figuring out how to manage all of the roles above plus many others, led me on quite a path that wasn’t always filled with joy and hope.
As a mom of four, I am constantly on the go. This used to really stress me out and boy did emotional eating take it’s toll on my health! I have learned some great techniques to conquer emotional eating and can’t wait to share them with you.
About a year ago, I had really reached my limit. My stress with through the roof and while I might have appeared happy on the outside, inside I was really struggling. I just kept thinking that this couldn’t be my forever life. I was just going through the motions of living without really enjoying it.
I had always been a lover of anything regrading natural health and decided to take a HUGE leap of faith. I started on a new career path that focused on helping people to overcome their health and wellness struggles.
Boy, did I learn a lot! I couldn’t get enough. I began researching different wellness techniques and become connected with people all over the world! I discovered my passion and purpose in this world, was to help people find joy again in their lives. It was the best feeling to wake up every day with energy and purpose. I am truly happy.
Now, do I still have work to do on myself? ABSOLUTELY! But is my stress manageable? Do I have time to do the things I love? Am I able to be the best mom and wife I can be? YES! YES! and YES!
I am still working on reaching a lot of my own health goals, but most days I can go to bed knowing that I am one more day closer to reaching my goals. I am better today, than I was yesterday.
Through my accredited education with the International Association of Wellness Professionals, I am now trained in a unique health philosophy called Wellness 360™ that helps people to create health and balance in all areas of their life.
I use a proven coaching process called the CORE Coaching Method which supports my clients to not only reach their goals but create lasting changes.

It is a finding the joy again program. It is being able to have faith in yourself again guide. You won’t be alone and I promise, it will forever change your heart.
