Wellness Program & Quality Manager

Melissa joined PMC in February 2015 as a Health Coach. She started her career as an Exercise Physiologist with ViQuest Worksite Wellness in Greenville, NC where she worked for 3 years. After moving to Moore County, she continued as a Wellness Specialist at Cape Fear Valley Hospital for 4 years before joining FirstHealth working with the Bariatric Program in 2006 and later, Community Health Services. Melissa initially came on board at PMC to conduct annual wellness visits and help with quality improvement. She quickly realized the need to expand our team and offer more services to meet the needs of our patients and developed the wellness department. Melissa currently manages our wellness and quality programs, conducts Annual Wellness Visits, assists patients with weight loss efforts through the IBT program, and provides support and education to those who seek assistance in quitting tobacco. Melissa’s passion for helping others and improving the quality of care that we provide to our patients is what drives her. She is honored to work alongside a team of professionals who share the same desire for treating the whole individual and empower others to see the positive results of simple behavior changes.
