Ms. Melody recently received her Autism certification. She graduated from UNCG with a B.S. in Sports Medicine in 2007 and worked as a physical therapy aide in an orthopedic clinic for 5 years. She loved working in rehabilitation and did a hippotherapy work study at Horse Power in Colfax, NC. She then became more interested in pediatrics and sensory integration, switching gears from physical therapy to occupational therapy. She received her Associate’s degree in OT from Cape Fear Community in College in Wilmington, NC in 2015. Her passion is working with the pediatric population and hopes to volunteer services someday in underdeveloped countries.
