Hi, my name is Melissa. Most people call me Mel, or occasionally Big Mel.
I have been a member at Shifted since 2016 and a coach since 2018(?). I am so so thankful we found the Shifted community because it definitely feels like home to us. I started coaching because CrossFit and Shifted gave me confidence and helped me believe I could do hard things and I want to help others do the same!
I recently finished my doctorate of Physical Therapy and I am so excited to use what I’ve learned at Shifted and school to help others move pain free.
When I’m not coaching, working, or working out, I enjoy drinking coffee, and spending quality time with my husband and son going to The Living Desert, hiking, or traveling.
I don’t coach as much any more but you can catch me on Friday early mornings and the occasional Saturday!
