Hi, I’m Mel
I'm the founder of Thrive over 40. Like you, I am a woman over 40 (49 to be precise). A few years ago, I became very aware of being ‘a woman of a certain age’. Once you head towards and past 40, this becomes a great time of reassessment. All of a sudden, our relationships with our jobs, careers, kids, partners or society in general, change. I don’t know about you, but I have felt ‘in the wilderness’ at times over the last few years. I have been fortunate to keep my career ‘going’, get fulfillment professionally and personally but that doesn’t mean it has been easy.
My background is people development and I have worked with some of the world’s greatest organisations, helping them develop their leaders and teams. I am a professional facilitator, coach and psychometrician and I love helping people unleash their potential. I am also a qualified personal trainer and love helping clients with their fitness and nutrition, two important cornerstones of being able to achieve your potential.
I now want to turn my attention to you. I know how much potential women over 40 have. The life experiences, the ability to take on huge challenges and succeed, and the value we add to society is huge. I would like to help you to ‘sur-thrive’ and be at your empowered best. You are already great! Step forward, all those who want to be awesome. I’d like to walk with you and help you get there.

One of the aims of Thrive over 40 is to create a community of like-minded women who are willing to share and learn from each other. None of us have all the answers, but together we can figure out the important things. We can share what we know, our stresses and joys. Together we are stronger, empowered and damn right invincible!
