‘Bored’ Mom Credits ‘Dr. Phil’ Crew With Inspiring New Career Path

In 2003, Melissa said her life as a stay-at-home mother of three daughters was “boring” and that she envied people who got to get out of the house and go to work. Dr. Phil arranged for Melissa to take a shift working with a sanitation crew, which she said was “hard work” that made her appreciate her own circumstances a little more. Nearly two decades later, Melissa says her kids are grown, and she went back to school, eventually earning a master’s degree. “Being on your show was life-changing,” she says. Today, Melissa has a new career path. Watch the video above to find out what it is and why she says she was inspired by observing the Dr. Phil crew.
