building a better tomorrow by redefining work today.

I started WorkRedefined because I was tired of seeing you placed in a BOX.
I was tired of seeing you defined by your past mistakes and limitations.
I was tired of seeing your dreams placed on hold for the sake of your career.
I was tired of your career being frowned upon by people who don’t know the influence you carry.
I was tired of seeing you conform to the norm.

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. Instead of being overwhelmed by your thoughts and underwhelmed with your lack of execution, let me provide you with what you need — permission.

Here at WorkRedefined, we give you permission to be both. Creative AND professional. Corporate AND entrepreneurial. Hard-working AND fun-loving. Impactful AND balanced.
We don’t just motivate you. We equip you.
We don’t just inspire you. We ignite you into action.
We don’t just pile unnecessary work on you. We support you and create solutions around your life’s obligations. Here, work-life balance will finally become your reality. 

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 we come in!

At WorkRedefined Consulting, we help our community live intentional lives, be successful at work, expand their impact, and work better together. We put our people first and develop the best professionals and businesses to build true legacy and impact our world.

Meet our 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 (twice in one year) and on my way to an impactful & prosperous career. 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 both in & out 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 business initiatives to life resourcefully. I serve as a high-end consultant helping purpose-driven professionals build careers and businesses around their true passions. I help my clients think beyond where they are today to tap into how they can build a better tomorrow. 

I utilize the strategies that quadrupled my 9-5 income within 5 years. Throughout my career, I’ve become certified in Career Development and Targeted Selection Interviewing. Resumes and Cover Letters written for our clients have landed them opportunities in competitive professional and residency programs, Fortune 500 companies, governmental/non-profit organizations, and more!

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