She is also a registered VicRoads OT Driving Assessor and enjoys being able to help keep our roads and drivers safe.

She has had the wonderful opportunities of attending several AHTA conferences in Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne where Re-wired have presented workshops, papers and posters.

She is honoured to be on the AHTA Credentialing Council and is an accredited Hand Thearpist.

Mel has enjoyed presenting papers and posters at multiple conferences including: ‘The Functional Outcomes of Nerve Transfers in the Brachial Plexus Patient’ at the International Musculoskeletal Conference (S.O.N.S.) in Japan 2014; and the Functional BPI Poster at the AHTA conference in Victoria 2013. She thoroughly enjoys applying her Hand Therapy skills to assist patients in their recovery.

She was involved in the first Plexus lnterplast Team which travelled to Vietnam in June 2016 where she volunteered her time to assist the Vietnamese medical community to improve their Hand Therapy Interventions with the Brachial Plexus population.

Outside of work she loves the challenge of running an Olive Grove with her family and is enjoying learning the art of producing Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
