Melissa is a graduate of Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, New York, where she obtained her degree in occupational therapy and has over a decade of experience in both the acute and subacute settings. She began her career at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, gaining extensive experience working on a wide array of treatments with a focus on patient-centered care. She is driven by the ability to help people overcome the symptoms of their diagnosis, not only physically, but also through adaptation.
