In 1997, she started her journey, attending the University of Rhode Island and graduating in 2000 with a Master of Science in Physical Therapy.

Her practice specialties include orthopedics and post-surgical rehab with a particular focus on postural awareness. She became a certified kinesiotaping practioner (CKTP) in 2011. In 2017, Melissa took Dr. Ma's integrative dry needling course to widen her skill base in order to help patients with a variety of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions.
Melissa enjoys working with all patients, looking at the entire patient so that their dysfunction is addressed along with any contributing factors, such as flexibility or posture for their return to full function while preventing future injuries.
