Melissa graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours). Growing up playing basketball and touch football for Tasmania, she developed an interest in physiotherapy after facing many of her own musculoskeletal injuries.

Melissa is passionate about working alongside others to help them achieve their goals and return to activities they love. She has particular interest in the rehabilitation of sporting injuries, post-surgical orthopaedic and lower limb conditions. 

Melissa also has experience working in a variety of roles with both semi-professional and professional sporting teams involved in basketball, soccer and AFL.

Outside the clinic, she enjoys camping, playing sports and exploring the outdoors.
