Melanie graduated in 2018 from university with a bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy. During her studies, she did a course to become a snowboard instructor and started working in her home ski resort in Austria on the weekends. That is where she started to dream about working with athletes coming from winter sports one day.

After she finished her bachelor degree she took a position in a rehabilitation center where she worked with lots of interesting patients with neurological challenges. This taught her a lot about active rehabilitation and the importance of movement and living a healthy life.

This year she started a course to become a Sport Physiotherapist, this allows her to specialize in active rehabilitation combined with hands-on treatments.

Her passion is to encourage others to live an active lifestyle and gain from those benefits in all areas of life. Other hobbies include hiking, working out in the gym, languages and photography, and of course SNOWBOARDING! Her passion and education make Melanie the perfect addition to the Alpine Sports Physio team.
