The Zest Collective VIP?

The Zest Collective is our signature membership,
a paid community for women who are ready to make their own wellbeing a priority. VIP is our all-inclusive option, with everything you need to take action and make progress.

As a Zest VIP member, you’ll learn to set healthy boundaries
and be supported by your own community who
get the juggle and understand the day-to-day challenges, because they’re our challenges too!

You’ll be supported with coaching, expert talks and resources to build momentum and help you get back your zest for life.

The Zest Collective is a
multi-dimensional membership
centred around Community, Knowledge and Support. 


Community and connection

Community is at the very heart of Zest Collective.


Making change isn’t easy, and that’s exactly what we’re doing to build a lifestyle where we are a top priority. What makes it easier is doing it with a group of people who absolutely get it and are cheering you on. 

It’s also really important for your wellbeing to be connected to other people, you’re wired that way! Whether in your existing support network or with new friends in the private Zest community, you will learn to strengthen and make the most of your circle.

Within the community there are dedicated threads to celebrate wins, ask questions and weekly tips and prompts to keep the momentum happening. It is also a private and safe space to share and respectfully  engage with other women who have similar goals and challenges. 

Learning and life lessons

“Ugggh does she mean…. online training??”

Relax. No! This is a membership and a community, not a school!

Yes, you will find bite-sized tutorials and masterclasses in your library, and we will have live webinars with experts available for VIPs but think of this as your own private 24/7 to all the best tips, tricks and information on wellbeing for women. From burnout to pilates, sleep to nutrition, our guest experts cover it all and new resources are added every month.

Ok, and there is a little bit of structured learning but not as you know it. For those of you who like step-by-step, the core wellbeing program was created as a standalone course and you have access to that too. It’s the perfect quick-start covering the fundamentals and you decide how you want to consume the content. It’s also short and snappy with practical resources, and no tests!

You’ll also learn so much in your group coaching sessions, where you can share ideas and get advice on implementation – because it’s all very well to know about wellbeing, but putting it into action in your own individual circumstances is where the results will come from.

Mentoring and motivation

That group coaching I just mentioned? It’s the zing in the Zest Collective – the part that will motivate you every fortnight and help you build momentum – where the rubber hits the road so to speak.

You’ll have access to Mel directly in a small group setting online, where we’ll discuss your challenges and you’ll leave each session with some ideas on what to do about them. 

Need more? Ad-hoc 1:1 sessions are available to add on at an exclusive discount rate to Zest VIP members, so you always have the option of intensive individual support if and when you need it. 

Outside of the coaching, you’ll receive weekly email prompts to inspire and motivate, be part of the community to cheer each other on, and have live access to experts each month who will answer your questions on a specific topic. 

As part of the Zest fam, you will be supported, mentored and celebrated every step of the way.

Did I mention the resources?

you get 24/7 access to a growing range of exclusive resources

Your Zest Vault

Currently over 30 tools and resources to support your growth including video tutorials, learning modules, printable planners and templates, checklists and self care guides. PLUS, VIP members have access to exclusive extras including an eight week self-paced wellbeing program.



Monthly Curated Self Care Box

As a Zest VIP Member you receive a beautiful self care box, put together especially for you and delivered to your door each and every month. Designed to help you keep up build your me-time muscle, the box always includes something to sip, something to snack on, and gorgeous products from Australian small businesses.


I started a new role
three years ago after coming out
the other side of burnout…

But 12 months later in my heart of hearts,
i knew something still wasn’t right

I was hitting goals and doing ground-breaking work and the scope of my role was already expanding. The more successful my projects were, the more I took on (or was given)
and in between all the excitement, a familiar feeling was swimming in my stomach.

A  six-month sabbatical became a turning point when I unexpectedly found myself thinking “I don’t want to go back.”

I had two little kids, we were all still in the middle of a once-a-generation world event (not even saying the “p” word), and I’d been subconsciously pouring energy into “proving myself” in my new role at work. I was overwhelmed, and I was exhausted.

And still I secretly wondered, “what is wrong with me?”

Who was I to want something different when I had everything I should ever want? Family, friends, an amazing career.
Why didn’t I want to keep following the opportunities in front of me? Why wasn’t I happy? Didn’t I ask for this?

**Spoiler alert**: There was, in fact, nothing wrong with me.

In fact I did want more, just not the more that came next on that particular roadmap. And that was actually perfectly ok.

And so I used all my skills, experience and connections across HR & learning, positive psychology, wellbeing, managing teams and recovering from burnout to start a new chapter.

And it worked.
It worked for me. It works for the women I help,
and I want the same for you. 

the process?

  easy as…

Step One:

Join the waitlist and as soon as doors open you’ll be first to know!
About a nanosecond after you join, you’ll receive your onboarding pack and access
to the community!

Step Two:

Hop into your quick-start module, helpfully labelled “Start Here”.
You’ll be walked through setting yourself up for success and where to find all the zestiest parts of your membership.

Step Three:

Start bingeing content like a new season of Utopia, or walk through it bit-by-bit. However you prefer to work, the only non-negotiable if you want to make progress is to show up with purpose and implement what you learn.

Frequently asked questions

Q: What if I don’t have time?

A: This membership is designed for people who don’t have time! Live sessions are recommended but definitely not mandatory and all masterclasses are recorded so you can replay later. You choose how much you can do each month and we’ll support you every step of the way #noguilt

Q: Will this help me if I’m burnt out?

A: Short answer yes. Longer answer, yes, but depending on your current health needs you may benefit from additional support. The Zest Collective does not replace the need for individual medical advice, however we do have resources on what to do and where to find help if you do need it, as well as an excellent referral network.


Great question!

The Zest Collective has two membership options, Zest Light, and our signature program, Zest VIP. 

We consider Zest Light the little sister to our Zest VIP Level – just like Skipper is to Barbie, she’s still fabulous just a bit more petite.

The main difference is the level of support, particularly access to coaching and live masterclasses, and the premium self care box and physical planner. If you’d like to compare, check out this easy membership overview.

Money Back Guarantee

Q: Is there a money-back guarantee?

A: Yes absolutely! I believe in this membership, so much so I offer a 7-Day no-questions-asked money-back-guarantee.
