My Story


Melissa Eisler
Newfield Certified Coach (NCC)

Trained and certified as a professional coach by Newfield Network, a program accredited by the International Coach Federation, I am dedicated to helping people reach their highest potential. In my coaching practice, I blend more than a decade of experience in the corporate world with my background in mindfulness, management, and leadership to guide clients to find or reignite balance, purpose, and productivity in their lives.

I have always been fascinated by human behavior, cultures, and the way people live, work, and communicate in different parts of the world—and what we can learn from our differences to apply to our own communities and lives. I have traveled to more than 35 countries, speak two languages, and feel that travel has enabled me to broaden my perspective in valuable ways.

I have spent more than 15 years as a content and marketing strategist and writer, focused on the health and wellness space. I’m an avid learner in the arenas of nutrition, leadership, and personal development, and have been teaching yoga and mindfulness since 2011. I’m also author of the book The Type A’s Guide to Mindfulness: Meditation for Busy Minds and Busy People.

For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in transformation and personal growth. My own experiences and transitions through loss, grief, careers, and relationships have fueled my desire to step out of my comfort zone, overcome my fears, and search for meaning—and help others do the same.

I specialize in career coaching, personal development and empowerment, leadership development, and helping successful people position themselves to be even more successful. This includes helping clients find the right career path, strike a healthy work-life balance, and position their experience and skillset for personal and professional fulfillment.

My favorite part of coaching is watching my clients shift their perspectives to expose possibilities they weren't able to see before and achieve results that they thought were out of reach. It is a true gift to be able to motivate people to live healthier and more balanced, purposeful lives—to design the lives they truly want to be living.
