Melodi attended Saint Francis University where she received a Bachelor’s of Science in 2002 and a Master’s in Physical Therapy in 2004. She began
working at Redstone Rehabilitation where she worked doing outpatient and home health until Melodi could work in the school setting full time knowing that she wanted to work with the pediatric population. Melodi worked in school districts, daycares, preschools and homes with children ages 3-21 for 9 years before moving onto Early Intervention exclusively for the past 5 years. She has experience working with children with developmental delays, Torticollis, prematurity, Down’s syndrome, autism as well as a wide range of rare disorders. Melodi has experience in using helmet therapy for plagiocephaly, kinesiotaping, working with orthotists and DME companies to obtain orthotics, bracing and equipment as needed. She loves getting to know the families and children in EI.
