Melanie McDermott, OTR

Occupational Therapist

Melanie is an occupational therapist at the Fort Atkinson Therapy & Sport Center and contracted to the Fort Atkinson School District.

I chose occupational therapy because I always had a passion for helping people. My area of interest is in pediatrics. I chose pediatrics and occupational therapy because to me, there is no better feeling than witnessing the expression on a child’s face when they are able to accomplish something they have been working so hard to gain.

I enjoy spending my free time with my 15-month-old daughter and my husband. Our time is primarily spent outdoors watching baseball games, going for walks, and playing with water toys. We are die-hard Packer and Badger fans so we tend to enjoy the fall season so we can get our football/volleyball fix in.
