Melanie Auz, Physical Therapist Assistant

Melanie received her Associate in Applied Science in Physical Therapist Assistant from Southwest Technical College in 2014. She has worked as a Physical Therapist Assistant for nearly 3 years. To supplement her schooling, Melanie earned a certification from the Gray Institute in Applied Functional Science and completed a 3D Movement Analysis and Performance System course.

Prior to working at PROCare Physical Therapy, Melanie gained a wide array of skills from working in a variety of settings. At one point, she was a fitness instructor. She also has experience working in a nursing facility, outpatient care, inpatient care, and in an industrial setting.

Melanie became a physical therapist assistant because of her strong desire to help people get back to doing the things they love. She believes that patients should be treated as a whole person and not be defined only by their pain or limitation.
Outside of PROCare Physical Therapy, Melanie loves anything related to fitness and the outdoors. In her spare time, you can find her reading, spending time with her loved ones, or training and competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (a martial art).
