For Melissa, there is no greater feeling than helping someone else achieve their life goals and be their best. She chose to become a physiotherapist for this reason.
Melissa approaches clinical practice with clear communication and a team orientated approach, striving for a client / therapist relationship that maximizes the clients’ journey and outcomes. She enjoys the challenge that comes from assisting clients to achieve their goals, and loves the ‘goosebumps’ feeling when they realise they’ve done so.
Melissa has held various senior neurological physiotherapy roles, from neuro ICU to acute ward care at tertiary hospitals, and rehabilitation specific movement disorder and brain injury units nationally. She has a special interest in neuro respiratory physiotherapy and a keen interest in the management of brain injury, neuro-progressive illness and stroke.
