Self Help

Some of the books were spiritual in nature, others were more hobby-focused, and other entirely health and wellness focused. All books were written under a ghostwriting contract and were published under a pseudonym.

Business

Melissa worked for a non-profit organization and completed the training documentation for four areas of duties within a single department.

The language and steps were written with simplicity in mind to make it accessible to all employees.

In addition, she wrote and created various business foundation documents such as calendars, invoices, project trackers, and client communication email templates.
