Reaching Out

Dr. Mel Tavares

Jesus lover. Wife to Joe, who is my real-life hero. Mom to seven adult children, several of whom live too far away to come over for dinner. Grandma to ten high-energy grands whom I don't see nearly often enough.


Author. Teacher. Speaker. Coach.

Survivor of Tempestuous Storms of Life. Overcomer. Determined. Strong faith. 

Maine 'born and raised', relocated to Connecticut a few years back. Living urban, thinking rural. 


I love the beach, gardening, the firepit in the backyard, camping, reading, writing, and hanging out with family and friends over a cup of coffee. I also love going to dinner with my hubby. 

Fun fact: Lifetime member of Porch Sitters of America. 

How may I help you RISEUP and reach your goals and dreams?
