Coach at More Than Basketball (Sun Valley, CA)
"Melissa Gillard has a fierce fire burning within that spreads intensely when you come in contact with it. She’s extremely resourceful, reliable and relatable to kids on every level. She is MORE THAN a COACH, she is the motivation, passion, and love behind her program and those she comes in contact with. Coach Mel goes above and beyond for each individual kid as a mentor, coach, and friend. She truly cares about them as human beings and teaches them how to be “more than”, so they can excel off the court. She is always there if you need her, she never turns anyone away"
