Dr. Melani Byrnes

I grew up in Oklahoma and graduated from Choctaw High School.  Myundergraduate and physical therapy education was completed at Langson University.  In 2012 I returned to AT Still University to pursue my doctorate degree in physical therapy. My physical therapy background includes many different aspects from starting in geriatrics at a small hospital where I worked in oncology, psychiatric units, wound care, orthopedics, and skill nursing, to traveling therapy in outpatient clinics, nursing homes, home health, and then to pediatrics.  I have worked in DDD home and community services, pediatric clinic and acute care at Tucson Medical Center, and have been with Amphitheater Public Schools since 2010.

I love adapting physical therapy specific exercises into toys, obstacles courses, and activities that all students want to participate.  My making activities fun and engaging lifelong practice is created.
