Aspire Training & Consulting was founded by me; the funny & knowledgeable, Melinda Marasch. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a social work/mental health consultant who has dedicated more than 20 years to my passion of helping others. I think I’m funny; others say I’m witty, personable and engaging. And I know my stuff. I specialize in providing knowledge and skill in a very practical way, so that you can take what you learned and use it immediately.


“Thank you for taking the time to discuss the topics and helping to relate them to our personal cases. I wish I had this course prior to beginning my time as a Medical Case Manager and the opportunity to continue this training throughout my career to ensure I am a competent Medical Case Manager.”

-Brice, Medical Case Manager

“Great course! While the virtual sessions weren't what we were hoping for, you all still made them very personable and enjoyable. The content matter could not be better!"

-Amy, Clinical Supervisor

“Many people can claim expertise, but few have mastered the art of training others. When a training request comes in from our participants, Melinda Marasch, is on my short list to call.

As the coordinator of a statewide technical assistance program for the affordable housing industty, I have a diverse customer base and a long list of complex topics to deliver. Melinda is one of our preferred trainers because she is professional, reliable and adaptive. She is thoughtful in the design of her classes, customizing them to address the day to day concerns of our audience and actively engaging participants in the application of new concepts. Her broad professional background has given her the ability to train on a wide range of topics. She is an excellent facilitator and I trust her with any group."

-Belinda, chfareach Coordinator, Asset Management
