    Biography:

    Melissa developed her passion for health and wellness when she competed as a professional MMA athlete, allowing her to fully understand the importance of human optimization. 

    This led her to pursue a career in the clinical field. She spent the first part of her career working as a physiotherapy/chiropractic assistant, being mentored by the right people and gaining that hands-on knowledge. During this time, she took certification courses such as Fascial Stretch Therapy and started to build a strong client base. 

    Wanting to offer her clients more and to continue her education she enrolled in Osteopathy school. She could not be happier with this decision to become a Manual Osteopath, it is very rewarding. Every day, you can make a difference in someone’s life. 

    Melissa is currently completing a concussion mentorship program. 

    Melissa’s compassionate and outgoing personality brings a welcoming experience for all of her patients.
