Meet Melissa

Welcome to my little corner of the Internet! I am Melissa Rivers, the Creative Peace Coach!

I am a Conflict Resolution Strategist and a Continuous Improvement Consultant. I teach strategies to individuals & business owners and that promote

mental clarity, self-preservation, rejuvenation and service to others.


After managing a series of personal and professional losses, I developed my signature Peace by Design Academy, which is a monthly coaching program that strengthens ability and provides reinforcement to manage personal and professional change.

Once I solidified my plan, I set a timeline to diligently work toward documenting and achieving my goals.

My ability to dream big and visualize a BETTER life for myself and my family allowed me to creatively design my way toward Peace!

I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in International Business, a Master of Arts Degree in Peace and Conflict Studies, a Paralegal Certificate, and certifications in Change Management, Lean Facilitation and Lean Six Sigma.
