This was a life and career changing experience for me."

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel." –Maya Angelou


As her favorite quote, this gives us insight on Melissa's view in helping others. At an early age, her family and friends encouraged her to pursue a career in massage because she enjoyed giving them shoulder massages. After graduating from Florida College of Natural Health, Melissa's massage career began in the spa setting providing relaxation, deep tissue, hot stone and pregnancy massages.

She wanted to offer more of her skills and fortunately ended up at Cobb Rehab & Wellness. "Working side by side with a very knowledgeable doctor has boosted my knowledge and ability to assess patients and their needs." Melissa's favorite therapy is Myofascial Release. "It's easier on the clients and therapists and it's more beneficial than anything I've ever seen." Melissa's experience, knowledge and desire to help with our patients' recovery makes her a star at our facility. She will do what it takes to offer the relief our patients need. When she is not massaging, you will often find Melissa working up front assisting with administrative duties. She is very detail oriented. This has been a bonus to us because it allows her to work frequently with insurance companies and other health care providers.
