Melanie graduated from Governors State University in 2018 with a master’s degree in Occupational Therapy. Before starting her occupational therapy program she observed and volunteered in an inpatient rehabilitation facility where she fell in love with the world of occupational therapy and helping individuals reach their personal and therapeutic goals. While in school she fell in love with her pediatric classes and fieldwork experiences.
She is thrilled to be part of the Milestone team! She has always enjoyed working with children and loves being able to help them and their families learn how to become independent and live their best lives. She has always felt like a giant child at heart! A fun fact about her is that she likes to collect old editions of the 1930’s Nancy Drew Mystery books from antique shops.
