Areas Of Specialty

Melody Coker has invested more than 25 years in leadership in the hospitality industry. She has implemented launch teams and systems for multiple top national restaurant concepts, ranging from QSR to casual, and with a particular passion for fitness and healthy eating, she has supported long-term growth initiatives in this space for Life Time Fitness.

Having hired, onboarded, managed, and promoted talent in hospitality and nonprofit organizations, Melody is uniquely valuable in her capabilities to understand a team’s needs, assess their opportunity areas, teach individuals to maximize strengths, and train employees on new skills. She possesses an immense emotional intelligence that makes her invaluable as a leader, collaborator, and mentor.

Imparting passion and inspiring compassion are as important to Melody’s process as managing details and measuring outcomes. She is fortunate to have been mentored by some of the best in her field, and she considers it a privilege to further that knowledge base in her mentorship of the talent working under her.

Fun fact: Melody is a certified yoga instructor and is pursuing education in nutrition. Also, completing the New York City Marathon in 2018 underscores perhaps one of her greatest attributes: Melody is a finisher!
