I am Dr. Melissa Bird.
A fierce public speaker, an advocacy coach, an author, and a professional trouble maker.

I am an exciting and inspirational writer and speaker that meets the needs of businesses and organizations who are interested in women’s rights, women in leadership, reproductive justice, and how women can light their inner fire to make change in their communities.

Annual Dinner 2011
I am a fierce public speaker who travels around the world to talk about feminism, reproductive justice, the Graceful Revolution, and unapologetic activism.
Check out my speakers reel on YouTube.

I am a writer whose words are communicated with reckless abandon, vulnerability and passion. My essays have been described as a “freight train of exquisite, gorgeous writing”.

You can find the Word of the Bird at Rewire, Kind Over Matter, and on my blog.


I am an advocacy coach who helps women rise and express their passion by inspiring them to go out into the world and kick-ass by engaging in revolutionary acts of social justice change. Join me for coaching.

The one saying that I live by every day is inspired by my hero Eleanor Roosevelt:
“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
I have a teensy bit of a Twitter habit and love engaging in thoughtful dialogue about how we can work together to change politics and policy in America.

As a writer, professor and fiery public speaker, Dr. Melissa Bird creates the genesis for a new brand of leadership.

Her words awaken revolutionaries, trailblazers and powerful innovators in the quest for justice.

When she’s not building her public speaking Empire, she can be found reading trashy novels, drinking fine whiskey, playing mom to three delicious humans, and loving her punk rock scientist James Thomas Kelly.

    Hi sweet dear one
    This is uncle Arvel.
    Just want you to know how proud I am of you. Finding your voice, standing in your personal power and leading by example. It must run in the family as your dear sister Camille is just as powerful.
    I just got out of the hospital on Friday for pancreatitis. Feeling better and i promise to be nicer to my Pancras.
    Kim and I are CO Founders and ministers at our own Center of Universal Light in Cottonwood AZ. We are like you becoming the change that we want to see in the world.
    Thank you for sharing your gift.
    Rev Arvel
