Dumfries, VA – Dr. Melissa Corley Carter, also known as The Barefoot Dancing Rocket Scientist, is an actual rocket scientist and a certified professional coach who focuses on resilience, leadership, and success. She’s also the author and photographer of the recently-released book, Running the World: Marathon Memoirs from the Seven Continents.

Through her coaching, Melissa helps clients discover within themselves the tools, mindsets, and practices to handle life’s challenges while awakening and expanding into their soul’s purpose.

Before becoming a coach Melissa spent twenty years aspiring to become an astronaut. She majored in engineering, was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Air Force, and earned a PhD in astronautical engineering. Despite perfect vision after corrective eye surgery, her pre-surgical eyesight disqualified her and shattered her astronaut dream. She later transitioned to the Air Force Reserve and switched from engineering to teaching leadership and professional development. She followed her inspiration to became a certified professional coach and realigned her life with her passions for creativity, human connection, leadership, mindful living, and building resilience.

Melissa integrates several energy-based modalities into her unique coaching process, which she refers to as “Rocket Science for Your Soul.”

Her newly-released book, Running the World: Marathon Memoirs from the Seven Continents, is about her journey of running marathons on all seven continents as well as the journey toward living a more authentic life. The book is available through Amazon and other booksellers and at Melissa’s website.
