Melissa Shea

Melissa Shea, Office Manager

Melissa is one of the first people you’ll meet when you schedule therapy with us. She is your number one advocate and information source regarding insurance, authorizations and billing. She’s also a wizard at making sure you get visits scheduled at the best times for your life and work.

Melissa came to us through her friendship with our therapist, Laurie. She had lots of office experience, but no medical expertise when she started. Over time, her knowledge of how insurance and billing works has made her a knowledge source you can count on. Please feel free to contact her with any questions or issues you might have about insurance or scheduling.

When she’s not working, Melissa enjoys running, walking her dog, hiking and hanging out with her 3 “almost grown” kids and her husband.

Melissa has been with Hands for Living since 2012, and has helped to grow the office from a tiny 2-therapist office to a busy, multi-therapist hand therapy clinic. We are grateful to work with her!
