Melissa enjoys playing and coaching ringette, where her own injuries from sport sparked an interest in the human body and ultimately led to her dream of a career as a physiotherapist. She enjoys helping her patients reach their goals and return to meaningful activities. She prioritizes an individualized and patient-centered approach to treatment and believes in pairing exercise-based rehabilitation with manual therapies and education to get patients back to doing what they love. Melissa has a special interest in working with kids and believes that rehabilitation should be fun no matter what age you are!
Outside of the clinic, Melissa can be found at the rink, the gym, in the mountains, biking, or looking for the best cup of coffee in the city!
