building a better tomorrow by redefining work today.

I started WorkRedefined because I was tired of seeing small businesses not living up to their full potential. I was tired of seeing talented service providers that I wanted to book with no clear client process in place. I had a burden for the 9-5preneur balancing their corporate job and business on the side, and overwhelmed trying to manage it all on their own. My heart went out to the entrepreneur going through the motions with projects and new offers lying dormant on their vision board. 

I knew there was more for you. You’re ambitious but often limited in your current environment. You want your work to matter. You’re multi-passionate but often overwhelmed by your own gifts. You’re needed in multiple spheres of influence, but you’re not quite sure where to start. Whenever you seek guidance or help, you feel closed in and overwhelmed by your lack of time and resources to execute your goals. 

I wanted to create a safe space for you to have the clarity, strategy, and support needed to finally bring your personal and professional goals to life. There’s nothing wrong with you. You just have so many gifts, ideas, and talents that you struggle holding space for them all. Your business isn’t failing. Instead of being overwhelmed by your thoughts and underwhelmed with your lack of execution, let me provide you with what you need — permission and support.

Consider me your personal advocate. Someone who takes on your mission & values as my own. Someone who understands that you’re multifaceted & gifted for multiple lanes. Someone who wants to champion efficiency for this business so that you can live the life you deserve and plan for your next. Seeking help doesn’t mean you aren’t good at what you do. Seeking help means you’re called to something bigger than you. And, you, my multifaceted CEO are worthy of help. 

You want something better for yourself. You want to be a part of something bigger than yourself.
But have you expanded your vision beyond yourself?

That’s where I come in!

Meet THE founder
Melanie Christina, mba, PMP

As a millennial with a highly-anticipated career on one hand and the twists & turns of life on the other, I really struggled to find my place in corporate America post-grad. Fresh out of college, I was hired by one of the top healthcare organizations in the Southeast, and I did great on the job! I was always applauded for my work, but something was missing. I was a good hire, but I didn’t have a true seat at the table. My voice was often minimized due to my age, race, and gender. My desired reach and impact was often limited as I left my job both overworked and underwhelmed. I truly wanted to create an impactful career. But, I was exhausted with endless researching and still not knowing how. 

Then, things began to change.

After a challenging conversation with my boss around my unfulfillment and uncertainty, we began to create a plan of action. I was enrolled in the New Leaders Certification Program within my organization. I gained decades worth of knowledge on navigating the workplace and leading with people and purpose in mind. I also endured a rigorous Career Development Program gaining the skills and tools needed to help myself and others transform their careers. Then, I went back to school for my MBA and Lean Six Sigma certification while also earning a certification in Project Management (all while working full-time). It was hard work, but I was on fire to create a meaningful career and position myself as the expert I knew I was within. I was promoted quickly and on my way to an impactful & prosperous career in project and operational management. But, I came to a crossroads. Am I going to keep all this knowledge and experience to myself? Or, am I going to pay it forward to help someone else? 

A few months later, I started a brand & blog to help millennials navigate their post-grad transitions and career paths. Seeing my audience go from post-grad depression to living purposeful lives was mind-blowing. Seeing them expand beyond their limitations to create a real impact outside of the workplace became my why. 

Fast forward to today, I’m an industry-leading project manager managing multi-million dollar projects for corporate America with world-renowned healthcare organizations such as Emory Healthcare and Piedmont Healthcare. I’m an MBA graduate and certified Project Management Professional (PMP). I also have certifications in Lean Six Sigma, meaning I’m professionally trained to bring businesses solve their problems and bring their initiatives to life resourcefully. 

I pay it forward by serving as a high-end project management and consultant helping purpose-driven entrepreneurs and small businesses create meaningful work. I help my clients think beyond where they are today to tap into & execute fora better tomorrow. 

Beyond my qualifications, I understand what it’s like to have a dream for your career and business. But, you lack the resources, connections, and influence to bring those dreams to life. I’m most effective because I’m resourceful. I’m good at maximizing what you have to push your business to the next level.
