Mellissa is an experienced, musculoskeletal, generalist physiotherapist. Her generalist skills are acquired from working in the public hospital and aged care system, internationally, in the mining sector and for the last 9 years as a private practice business owner.
Whilst Mellissa is a business owner herself she found providing training, development and mentoring to graduates in private practice very time consuming and this was reflected in the business revenue, due to her having to step away from her own patient load to dedicate the time to the graduates.
She went searching for some type of program or ability to outsource this role to help with training graduates in a private practice setting but was unsuccessful on her search. There are many exceptional self directed, online resources to access, however none of them were specifically targeting graduates in private practice with a focus on business and clinical development.
She decided to create a solution to her own problem and developed Physiomentor, a business designed for private practice business owners wanting and needing to outsource the training of new graduates in private practice to be profitable in business and clinically exceptional for private practice.
Mellissa will work one on one with you the business owner and your graduates to design and implement a program that will fast track your new graduates to build your business revenue and create a clinician your clients will be lining up to see.
Mellissa is a keen APA member and is part of the APA Focus Group that currently discusses 'Graduate Readiness in Private Practice'.
