Melanie Iglesias, COTA-L
In 2019, Melanie earned her Associates of Occupational Therapy Assistant degree at PIMA Medical Institute in Las Vegas, NV. Soon after graduating, she worked at an Outpatient Pediatric Clinic where she spent time applying her entry level skills until January 2021 (when she decided to make the big move to Central Oregon). Prior to earning her degree, her background includes working at the Clark County School District in Las Vegas as a Specialized Teachers Assistant. She worked closely with children with Learning Disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorder in the classroom. Melanie’s experience has evolved and grown into a great love and passion working with children with special needs. She truly believes it is her calling and complete comfort zone. As a new Oregon resident, Melanie enjoys simply taking in the views of what Central Oregon has to offer. As much as she loves exploring the great outdoors, she equally loves relaxing days at home with her significant other and their dogs.
