Hi! I'm Melissa

I'm a professional ballet dancer and a Nutrition Educator & Wellness Coach based in and serving Washington, DC and the DMV region. My lifestyle-focused method helps clients achieve personal results and enhance athletic ability, eMpowering performance in class, rehearsals, and on-stage. As professional dancer myself, I have gained nutritional balance and improved my own relationship with food through many years of practice. I have a Masters of Science in Nutrition from University of Bridgeport, and I bring this depth of personal and academic experience to a variety of clients, particularly dancers + performance athletes.

eMpower your performance

Your performance includes more than what an audience sees onstage. Together, we address all aspects of what makes you the dancer you are and can be, beyond food choice + related behaviors.

Opting into an eMpower performance plan provides a custom wellness plan, check-in sessions + accountability, scheduling priority, and more.
