As a trained award-winning journalist, she uses her passion for education, quippy wordplay, and really bad puns to inform her writing—helping her explain dense, meaty topics in a light, approachable way. Since joining the WebPT family in 2018, Melissa has authored a treasure trove of heavily-researched blog articles, webinars, guides, and social media posts—distributing knowledge to rehab therapists en masse. She also discovered a passion for rehabilitative therapy, and enjoys spreading the word about the benefits of healing musculoskeletal issues through movement. Now, Melissa puts her journalism background to work as she scouts the digital presses for the latest updates in rehab therapy news, and she finds joy in decoding and demystifying CMS’s latest regulatory complexities.
