Melissa Ambrosini is the bestselling author of Mastering Your Mean Girl and Open Wide, a keynote speaker, entrepreneur and self-love teacher.

In her signature straight-talking style, Melissa teaches women how to master their inner Mean Girl, smash through limiting beliefs, and ditch the self-doubt so they can start living the life of their dreams.
