Hi, I'm Dr. Melissa Oden! Welcome to my website!

I am a Certified Health Education Specialist®, Licensed Master Social Worker, Public Health Practitioner, Certified Oola Life Coach & Founding Oola Ambassador, and Natural Health Practitioner! The mantra of my company is “Helping People Heal,” and that means healing in every aspect of your life: Spiritual, Emotional, Psychological, Physical, Mental, and Relational.

I would like to help you with...
creating and living the life of your dreams by attaining positive health outcomes through natural health principles and finding balance in the 7 key areas of life: Fitness, Finance, Family, Field, Faith, Friends, and Fun!

I am really good at...
organizing, cooking, creating vision, leading teams, teaching/educating/facilitating, throwing a GREAT party!

Some fun facts about me:

  4. I love (and am addicted to) McAlister’s unsweet tea with lemon.

  6. I LOVE football! High School, College, Pro…. doesn’t matter.  I love it all!
  7. Music plays a huge part in my life on a daily basis.  I like a wide variety of music, and what I listen to depends on my mood for the day.
