Melanie is originally from Florida, but fell in love with the people and city of Memphis while here for an internship in 2008. She has pediatric occupational therapy experience in early intervention, the school system, and an outpatient clinic. Melanie is excited to join the MFCC team and considers it a privilege to journey with families. She believes learning new skills through occupational therapy should be fun for the child, and parental involvement is a key to success. You will find her cheering on the Florida Gators in the fall and heading to the beach in the summer. She also enjoys running and loves ice cream any time of the year.
Melanie earned her Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy and Bachelor’s Degree in Health Science from the University of Florida.
