My name is Mel Rivera and I'm a trusted advisor to organizational leaders seeking to maximize their results through people. As a partner with the Management Center and the founder of Breaker28, I've coached and trained hundreds of organizational leaders in the nonprofit sector on how to get outstanding results and build engaged, inclusive teams - all on a shoe-string budget.

Prior to coaching managers, I served on a few exec teams in the Education Sector (mostly in Heads of HR/People Operations roles). I have my SPHR certification, my MS in Organization Development and a professional certificate in organizational consulting and change leadership from Georgetown's School of Continuing Studies. In Fall 2020, I'm also slated to get my Diversity Coaching certificate from Howard University. More importantly, I'm always learning and speaking with others in our field to ensure I provide clients with the very best advice available on how to maximize their results through an engaging, effective, and equitable management and leadership practices.

Given my other work in the field, I take on 5-10 consulting projects annually through Breaker28 with organizations I believe in and that align with our organization's values and expertise.  If you think we might be a fit for what you need, I would love to connect.
