Helping others achieve their goals has been at the heart of Mel Coppola’s career path. Through training, coaching, and facilitative learning experiences, she has helped others open up to new ideas and possibilities.
For more than 5 years, those ideas have focused on person-directed core values and principles, primarily in the aging field.
Understanding that every senior has a gift to give and deserves a meaningful life where their voices and choices are honored and respected, she brings extensive training and knowledge to the table. She has sparked her local community to begin to make the necessary changes in our aging world. She is deeply ingrained in two national organizations working to bring person-directed care practices into the lives of all seniors, The Eden Alternative, and Pioneer Network, and speaks on person-directed care topics at national and international conferences.
