Melanie Brooks

Melanie Brooks, OTD, OTR/L

Specialization: Post-stroke recovery, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, TBI, Muscular Dystrophy, Dementia, Post surgical rehabilitation, Hand/wrist/elbow

Melanie is a certified, licensed occupational therapist. Her passion for becoming an OT started with her brother, who has Down Syndrome and Autism. She grew up attending his therapy appointments with him and saw how impactful therapy was on his life. From there she knew that working with people with disabilities, of all sorts, was her goal to be someone that positively impacts this population. Through her experiences in school, she found that working with people with neurological conditions is where she feels she can do the most good. At PT@acac she's also excited to be working with hands/orthopedic patients to restore functioning back in their lives.

Melanie is primarily from Colorado, but before settling there had moved around from New Mexico, Florida, and Texas as her dad is a retired Air Force pilot. She attended Colorado State University for her bachelors in Psychology. She traded the tall, snowy Rockies for the lush, historic Blue Ridge mountains and received her Doctorate of Occupational Therapy from Mary Baldwin University-Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences. She enjoys participating in all the outdoor activities Virginia has to offer (kayaking, hiking, outdoor restaurants) and is happy to call Charlottesville area home.
