"I love the challenge of exploring areas of growth that seem unreachable--goals that most would consider unattainable, or even unthinkable. We're each responsible for creating our own lives. The thought of that thrills me!"

- Melissa Timberlake


Melissa Timberlake is an author, speaker and professional life coach with an unwavering passion for excellence. Her life purpose is to connect with and inspire others through creative communication, events and experiences. She has a sharp instinct that helps her detect and hone those qualities that are highest, best and most brilliant in both people and in organizations. One of her core beliefs is, “Growth happens when you're on the edge". 

With a background in theater performance, radio, television and video production, Melissa is comfortable and confident in a variety of creative communication formats. Melissa believes passionately in the healing of laughter. Because of that, she trained in improvisation and comedy at Improv Olympics in Chicago. With her husband, Doug, she created The Comedy Café, a whacky, sidesplitting, interactive, improvisational show that keeps audiences on their toes while building community through laughter, play and fun. Along with numerous freelance assignments, Melissa has co-authored 3 books. Her first book entitled Getting Beyond “How Are you?” teaches people how to create deeper connections through the art of good conversation. 

Besides being an excellent communicator, Melissa is also an intuitive and highly effective Professional Life Coach who “holds” a person, concept, business or project to its ultimate greatness. She’s been described as a consummate encourager who stands by the resolute belief that we can do more, be more, become more–and all the while truly enjoy the process. She possesses the rare combination of powerful listening, spot-on insights and a fierce commitment to how her clients are showing up in their businesses and in their personal lives.


I worked with Melissa to discover possibilities for a second career. She was insightful, encouraging, resourceful and a delight to be around. After each session my mind was opened to new possibilities and I always felt delighted to have spent time with her working on my needs. I would highly recommend Melissa a a source for any coaching needs you may have-in whatever area of life you would like to improve.
