Melissa grew up in southeast Kentucky. She began her college studies at Thomas Moore College in Northern Kentucky before transferring to Bellarmine University where she earned a bachelor’s in Health Science in 2005. Melissa then went on to earn her doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2007. She has had the opportunity to work in various settings across the country including pediatrics and wound care, but returned to Louisville in 2010 to focus her career on her specialization in Pelvic Health treating male and female adult patient populations. In 2015 Melissa became a Board Certified Women’s Health Specialist (WCS), which is a certification from the Federation of the State Board of Physical Therapy (FSBPT). This was earned through hours trained, knowledge comprehension and ability to publish.
For balance, when not working, you can find Melissa listening to live music, “road tripping”, hiking or running, often with her husband and 2 children.
