Melanie has two families. Her first is her oldest, and her dearest: her husband and two children, who coaxed her away from Ohio in the mid-90s. They travel to the west coast at least once per year, and shorter distances to watch her daughter play softball and visit her son at UNC-Wilmington.

Then, there’s us. Melanie signed on with Back in Action in 2002 and has been our office manager ever since. As a result, she’s indispensable and knows our clinic like few others do. Her degree in marketing and the requisite organizational skills of a mom make her ideal for the job, and we don’t know what we would do without her.

Despite her behind-the-scenes role, Melanie has a lot in common with our physical therapists in her love of biking and running. And like many of them, she’s also a secret bookworm.
