Getting your story heard doesn't have to be so hard

  • Are you an entrepreneur who is launching a new business, but you're not sure how to begin promoting it?
  • Or are you a small business owner who's struggling to promote an existing business? 

With fewer media outlets, combined with increasing competition, getting your business story in front of the right audience is more challenging than ever.

I can help you.

Resonate with your audience

The Heart-focused Communicator

"We're all tethered to technology these days. But the only way you will have a true competitive advantage is if you take your message to a place beyond the digital realm, where it resonates with real hearts of the real people you're trying to reach. I can help you get there." -Melanie  


Thank you for visiting my website. Please. Pour yourself a cup of tea, have a look around (go on the scented walk), and make yourself at home.

By way of introduction, I am a heart-focused communicator who feels called to help women entrepreneurs, especially those who are just starting out, as well as small business owners. My clients approach their work with a sense of service and are committed to making the world a better place.  

I am well-versed in the skills one would expect to find in a senior-level, professional communicator:

  • Research and strategic planning
  • Writing and editing
  • Content creation and curation
  • Basic website design
  • Social media strategy and execution
  • Digital marketing strategy and execution
  • Media relations
  • Key influencer relations

One more thing about my work: I have formally and extensively studied all-natural botanical essences in the United States and France and am a trained "nose." I use this knowledge to help many (but not all) of my clients tell their stories in ways that are somewhat unusual and absolutely memorable. 

If you would like some additional insight into my background, or if you just want to be mildly entertained, here's my unofficial bio

I hope you enjoy "nosing" around my website.
