About Me

I am Melanie. Let’s grow a bold career together.

I am an avid endurance athlete, triathlete, swimmer, roadie and life-long learner. I have a full-on, rewarding career, I’m a mother and have had my life changed and enhanced by all things endurance sports.

Lycra is my uniform of choice and I greet life with a glass half full. I believe in power of setting goals and the power of manifesting success.


In the midst of my career, I found myself facing a dilemma. I was looking for professional mentoring group and coaching that spoke to my roots as an endurance athlete.

I had my athletic posse and I wanted the same for my career. I was tired of not fitting in to (or wanting to be part of) ‘the boys club’, but I was not finding any women’s groups that spoke to who I was an athlete.

I set out to create that missing piece. Firmly planting my own root, I grew the professional coaching I wanted as an athlete. Through Poppy Sports, I offer a unique career coaching service, empowering female athletes to BLOOM in all areas of their careers and leadership journeys.

As endurance athletes, we are all rooted in a lifestyle that is unique to us, and Poppy Sports serves to help you BLOOM.
