Melanie brings a wealth of anatomy knowledge to the Rise and Shine team! Her passion for Pilates began through her work as a Physical Therapist. She realized Pilates was a great tool for rehabilitation of mind and body, so she pursued a Pilates Mat and Pilates Reformer certification.

Melanie found relief from scoliosis through her own personal Pilates practice and hopes to bring the same benefits to her clients. She loves combining her passion of physical therapy and Pilates in a new way, through PT Wellness. During your session with Melanie, she will complete an assessment of movement and posture in order to customize her Pilates programming so that it address your individual needs. 

When Melanie is not practicing Physical Therapy and Pilates, she enjoys cooking and outdoor activities with her family. She is a devoted mom and spends her free time supporting her kids' various activities, including soccer and musicals.
