Melanie is from Vancouver, BC, Canada, and has lived in the United States since 2011. She played collegiate softball at Western Nebraska Community College and Friends University, which is what brought her to the United States. Melanie knew she wanted to pursue a career in Physical Therapy after spending several months in PT rehabbing her shoulder after an injury in softball. With the motivation and care that her physical therapist provided, she was able to return to the sport that she loved. Going through this experience inspired her to want to help others return to their prior level of function and make a difference in someone’s life.

Throughout Physical Therapy school, Melanie was involved in several GoBabyGo builds and events, where PT and engineering students come together to modify power wheel cars for kids with disabilities. She is also a PT volunteer for the Adaptive Swim Classes at the Northwest YMCA.

Outside of the clinic, Melanie enjoys doing CrossFit, snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, traveling, and spending time outdoors. She also enjoys going back home to spend time in the mountains and at the beach with her family.
