Head of Innovation
At 52 years of age, Melanie has accomplished what would take most people a few lifetimes to achieve. She is passionate about working with people to improve their lives. A lifelong student of all things health & wellness, Melanie packages her knowledge into her staff, her lectures, her food, her workouts, and her curriculum.
Mel has been creating and developing Phuket Cleanse in her mind and kitchen for the past three decades. Then 20 years ago, Mel trained as a raw food chef out in California under Juliano — a pioneer in modern raw food cuisine. This was the springboard that launched Mel’s personal journey into health, fitness, and nutrition, resulting in her going from 75 kgs (160 lbs) to 50 kgs (105 lbs), and ultimately creating Phuket Cleanse. With a master’s degree in Education, Mel is one of the most published authors in the field of English education. She has presented to over 150,000 teachers all over the world. While she is still an educator, it is now in the field of health, nutrition, and mindfulness.
