Biography

Melissa was born and raised in Ohio and moved to California shortly after completing High School. She first fell in love with the Eastern Sierra after finishing her undergraduate degree. She decided to moved away to pursue a Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy near Asheville, NC. Following completion of the program, she spent a year and half in Steamboat Springs, CO, continued her studies in advanced manual physical therapy and gained experience working with skiers and mountain athletes. She moved back to Mammoth in 2018 and is now sitting for a Certification in Functional Manual Therapy through the Institute of Physical Art. She is a life-long learner, looking forward to bringing her passion to the people of the area and continuing to specialize in sports rehab and performance as her career unfolds. Melissa is an avid outdoor enthusiast who can often be found on Mammoth Mountain or in the backcountry skiing, climbing in Yosemite or running on local trails with her dog, Hazel.
