My Personal Story
I grew up in Hawaii but fell in love with the Cascades and Puget Sound. I graduated from UW Seattle (GO HUSKIES!) and commissioned into the US Navy as a Surface Warfare Officer (GO NAVY!). My deployments include SE Asia, Central America, and the Middle East. I transitioned to the Reserves and became a Doctor of Physical Therapy through The George Washington University, settling down in Washington State with my family.
I love bicycling (road), weightlifting, kettlebells, and eating. My ideal day would start with eating chocolate for breakfast followed by cycling to/from work, lifting weights and swinging ‘bells during lunch break, and playing with my kiddo until we both fell asleep.
Melanie explains everything very detail. I have only had two sessions yet I feel at ease with her.
Looking forward to my results.
