About Me

Approachable Badass

& Chief Visionary

 

Behind the Scenes

Branding Meets Speaking

Brand is in my blood. I tried to escape it by burning Sisarina, my brand strategy agency, down and calling myself a recovering brand strategist, yet it runs through my veins.

With over 20 years of experience building business brands and personal brands, I launched Confidancia – an agency helping rebels discover their brilliance and spark their revolutions.

They say you have to walk the talk – and if I can toot my own horn for anything, being on brand is something I do well – in business and in life.

Since my personal brand is Approachable Badass, I live and breathe helping you find your own branded language, style, and purpose by being approachable enough to learn your heart, then turning on the badass to help you show up & show off for yourself and those you’re here to serve.

Melanie can help you to open the door you’ve been banging your head against as long as you’re REALLY ready to walk through it.” – Maggie Langrick, CEO of Wonderwell

I know I am not for everyone. Only for those who are ready to show up for themselves. You can find me speaking on big stages all over the world, playing at corporate trainings for companies big & small, and creating curated retreats for our private clients. 

It took me 20 years to figure out who I am and it’ll take another 20 years to fully settle into it. So, I’m right here with you as we walk this beautiful journey called life.
