Meet Coach Melissa
Hi! I am Melissa Monroe, and I'm so excited you are interested in nutrition coaching! A little about me... I have a wonderful husband and two pretty terrific sons. As you can see in the picture, I have a beautiful dog named Jasmine (who is honestly a little bit of a diva!) I am also a certified Pn1 nutrition coach through Precision Nutrition.
I have spent most of my life NOT thinking about nutrition and health. After determining I had multiple food intolerances in my thirties, however, I started focusing on changing my diet to help me feel my best. One healthy habit usually leads to another, and I started walking Jasmine (who was a very energetic puppy) three miles every day. Honestly, it was more for her than for me. Eventually, walking wasn't enough exercise for Jazz, so we slowly learned how to run together. At 40, I fell in love with running, races, and the local running community. I have completed multiple 5k and 10k races, half-marathons, 25k trail races, and a 50k trail race. Along with running, I enjoy cycling, strength training, and yoga. Nutrition has become a big part of my life so I can have the energy to do all the things I enjoy.
Jasmine is no longer able to join me on my runs these days, but she still looks forward to our walks!
Questions? I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to message me!
