TranscenDANCE—Lessons from Living, Loving, and Dancing
Bio: Melissa Drake is a proud single mama who made the transition from living for others to finding her true self and serving others while making her dreams come true. She lives life knowing “everything is happening perfectly” and accepts life’s tough transitions as redirection and an opportunity to experience a more fulfilling life. When middle-age life and an empty next presented a wake-up call in the form of two concurrent chronic illnesses and a job loss after a 25-year career, she turned to social media and dancing for a reprieve. The results included recovery from a lifetime of depression, a cross-country move from the Midwest to California, full-time entrepreneurship, and a TEDx Talk, “The Dance of Collaboration.” Melissa writes, edits, speaks, and leads workshops helping others expand and realize their dreams.
