Melissa graduated from the University of South Australia in 1996. After initially working in adult rehabilitation, she moved to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in 1998 to pursue her passion for working with babies and children. Since then, she has worked in a range of paediatric settings, including hospitals, CaFHS, private practice and schools. Melissa has an interest in both developmental and orthopaedic conditions, and as well as being an experienced aquatic physiotherapist is also a swimming instructor. Outside of work, Melissa’s 3 daughters keep her busy, but she does find time for her own sport and fitness!
