Melissa Pennel, Certified Coach

I am a writer, speaker, and empowerment coach in Northern California, where I live with an incredible partner and three fur babies. I returned to school at the age of 27 and earned a degree in psychology from the University of California at Davis; my studies there only further piqued my interest in understanding the human condition. I've found a particular calling in the arena of recovery, both from addictive behaviors and creative blocks. After hitting my own emotional and creative rock bottom, I felt forced to find something different: something I call tuning into my own "fire." That fire has guided me toward a life infused with meaning, purpose, and creativity…and now it’s my goal to help other people do the same.
