Hometown: Harvey, NB
Why I love physio: “I love having the ability to empower people to help them help themselves. It’s an incredibly diverse profession that makes everyday different and constantly solving new puzzles”
“I love all aspects of physiotherapy- I primarily stay in orthopedics but enjoy working in acute setting and doing home visits”
Activities and interests: “I love to spend my time in the kitchen trying new recipes and recreating old ones. I love spending time outdoors canoeing and swimming in the summers or snowshoeing and skating in the winter.”
“I graduated from École Sainte-Anne in 2012 and then began my Kinesiology degree at UNB. Throughout my time in Fredericton my biggest passion was volleyball. Throughout the course of my volleyball career, I had several significant injuries that required physio. This is what peaked my interest in becoming a physiotherapist. During my free time, I enjoy getting outside as much as possible, playing guitar and binge-watching Netflix on Sundays. I chose to become a physiotherapist because I have always had a passion for helping others. My biggest strength is being able to create individualized exercise programs. I enjoy the challenge of every patient’s uniqueness when it comes to rehab and exercise prescription. I plan to take several orthopedic courses focusing on various musculoskeletal impairments to increase my knowledge regarding new innovative forms of treatments.”
Melanie has been at Range of Motion since 2010, Practicing physiotherapist for 22 years.
“I was drawn into physiotherapy because of my lifelong passion for health and fitness. I also love that the profession offers me the opportunity to help others achieve personal goals; whether it be to motivate them to turn off the TV and start a daily walking program, try a new sport, or do their first marathon. Professionally, my background includes experience in many sports, as well as, specific training in acupuncture and concussion therapy. Personally, I have achievements in track, triathlon, and long distance running and enjoy music, outdoor activities, and spending time with my 3 daughters and husband in my spare time.”

“My happy place is with my family! I enjoy nothing more than running, swimming, biking & hanging out at the beach with my family. They are the source of my joy and my white hair! Each one of them influences me as a Physio in a different way- from their medical expertise/advice to their miracle medical stories (double lung transplant)- I am inspired and blessed!”

“I love spending time outdoors and being with family. I love my job as an OT because I get to help my clients increase function in their every day activities and improve their quality of life. I am passionate about specializing in concussion/post concussion syndrome as it is very complex and I use all of my 25 years experience with brain injury to help resolve symptoms and get people back to school and work. The impact of post concussion syndrome can be devastating to my clients. Helping get them back to doing things they enjoy is so rewarding.”
