Your Coach: Melanie C Gallo, PhD

I am a professional coach and Forbes contributor dedicated to helping professionals reduce stress and increase productivity. After 25 years of research and work in the private sector, I understand that WorkLife is not as much about balance as it is about managing all of the overwhelm that can disrupt our mental and physical health and stop productivity. With a background in business psychology, I have created an innovative yet individualized system to help professionals like you reduce stress, re-gain clarity, increase productivity, and LIVE your best life.
