About Us

Hi There! Our team truly defines who we are as a practice, and we think they’re pretty amazing. We look forward to introducing ourselves in person, but for now, thank you for taking a moment to get to know us electronically!

Melissa (Nephew) Meiste, MSPT2014-1.02.28 Melissa (2) (Owner and Physical Therapist) Melissa is the brains behind the outfit. She is the go-getter who keeps wheels turning, the entrepreneur who loves to create, and the visionary who dreams big things for the future. She is also a practitioner who knows her stuff and takes great care in her role as a PT. Melissa genuinely enjoys getting to know you. She’ll get to the bottom of your pain, and while she’s at it, you’ll find yourself telling her your life story. We like to think of her as our extrovert extraordinaire.

Melissa has practiced PT since 1999, opening up Nephew’s doors in 2006. She married her husband, Mitch, in 2009, and together they have two active and adorable boys, Cooper and Grady. Outside of work, Melissa extends her creativity to her church, social life, and home. She’s an avid scrapbooker, softball player, and Entreleader (, who won’t ever tire of helping others to strengthen marriages and achieve financial freedom. If Melissa could take a vacation tomorrow, she’d be on her way to a tropical island to enjoy the sun, sights and fabulous photo opportunities.
