Melissa was born and raised in Lincroft, New Jersey. She is currently in school seeking a degree in Health Care Administration. Melissa loves helping people find their potential through obtaining long term sobriety, and her personal experience with addiction and recovery drives her passion. Melissa has worked in the field for the past few years, starting as an intake coordinator and falling in love with the business development side of things. Melissa’s drive to help any and everyone suffering from the disease of addiction and walk side by side with them through their treatment process was what lead her to community outreach. She was drawn to Banyan because of our ability to treat any patient from any demographic, and that our mission aligned with her core morals and beliefs. She couldn’t be more excited to be a part of such an excellent team.
