Melissa has a passion in working with the elderly to aid with improving balance for falls prevention, improving strength for function, and overall promoting a healthy, active lifestyle in later life. She strives to provide patient centered care, working with all patients to create and achieve goals significant to their personal recovery.
Melissa completed her Bachelor of Kinesiology (Co-op) with Honours at Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2017. She then received her Master of Science (Physiotherapy) degree at Dalhousie University in 2019.
Since beginning her career, Melissa has taken further education in the areas of concussion, whiplash, acupuncture, and most recently, female urinary incontinence and physiotherapy care for transgender and gender diverse individuals. She hopes to provide care to a wide variety of individuals and strives to provide an inclusive environment that is comfortable for all patients.
Melissa believes in the importance of an active lifestyle and enjoys doing so through daily walks with her golden doodle, Winston. Having a furry friend has given her motivation to get out and get moving, even on days when the Newfoundland weather would typically keep her inside.
