Melissa A. Fabello, PhD is a feminist writer and speaker who covers issues related to social justice, body image, and sexuality. Melissa is a licensed educator with over a decade of experience facilitating knowledge acquisition and healing through self-development. Her energetic presentations – of which, Melissa has given over 100 at various universities, organizations, and conferences – are created around participant-centered learning objectives, so her audiences leave not only with knowledge, but with tangible skill sets (and a laugh or two).
Melissa has worked in the digital sphere of social justice work for over a decade. Most notably, she worked as Managing Editor of Everyday Feminism for five years, building the platform from the group up. Melissa has also done extensive work for The National Eating Disorders Association, The Representation Project, Adios Barbie, and Laci Green’s Sex+ community. Her work has also been featured in BuzzFeed, The Washington Post, The Guardian, and on MSNBC and the BBC.
Participants have written that “her teaching style is a fantastic mixture of sharp doses of reality, validating experiences, and humor” and that “she turned the audience into a community, and many left transformed.”
Melissa holds a PhD in Human Sexuality Studies.
