Hello there, I am Melissa!

Nice to meet you, I am glad you are here. I received my Doctor of Physical Therapy from Texas Tech University Health Science Center in 2011. I am board certified as a Neurologic Specialist and in Neurodevelopmental Treatment.  

I decided to pursue Pediatric Physical Therapy by combining a love of medicine and teaching. I enjoy connecting with children and parents and encouraging them in their journey. My passion for pediatric physical therapy also comes from personal experiences – I was born with a rare GI malformation and had several surgeries both as a baby and again as a teen. I deeply understand what it’s like to struggle to do the things you love and what it’s like to need hope.

My unique treatment approach is based on the realization that every patient is different and therefore requires the use of many different therapeutic tools. You will find that I use a hands-on approach with a high intensity to challenge patients and meet their goals. 

I have had the privilege of teaching at Texas Woman’s University Physical Therapy school, Gaza, Palestine, the Cerebral Palsy Annual Academy, and APTA sections at Pediatrics Conference. 

When not working you will find me snow skiing, baking, having intentional down time to relax, and hanging out with friends. 

  Let's Work Together  

Hi, I am Leah!

I received my Doctor of Physical Therapy from Texas Woman’s University in Houston in 2011. I have worked in the field of pediatric physical therapy for over 10 years with the majority of my career at a specialty care hospital, where I learned that there is always hope for things to change and get better.

From a young age I knew I wanted to work in medicine and pediatrics. Being a Pediatric Physical Therapist is more than just my dream job, it’s the opportunity to truly help change lives. The ability to decrease someone’s pain in just one session, or to empower a parent on how to support their baby’s development is incredibly rewarding.  

I believe a child should determine their future, not a diagnosis. And that every parent should have the tools and knowledge to care for their child through all seasons of life.

In my free time you will find me gardening, baking, or reading. But my favorite thing is to explore the outdoors and new places with my husband, James, and our two sons.

As a Physical Therapist—or, more specifically, your physical therapist — our top priorities are to:

Educate: Offer guidance and education to give you tools from the first time we meet.

Find the Root Issue: Create a detailed, goal-oriented plan—tailored to each child—to tackle goals.

Empower: Help guide you along your journey and give you the tools you need to help your little one thrive .
