Melissa Flores, PTA

My name is Melissa Flores and I am a Physical Therapist Assistant at Kelly Hawkins Physical Therapy. I’m from Oxnard, California and moved to Henderson, Nevada with my family when I was 12 years old. My favorite things among many include family, sports, and food. Basketball is my favorite sport and I hope to one day have the opportunity to watch the Duke Men’s Blue Devils play at home in Camden Stadium with a front row seat next to Coach K (most definitely on my bucket list). I graduated from Fresno Pacific University with a B.A Kinesiology in 2010, and from Carrington College with A.S Physical Therapist Assistant in 2017.  I initially discovered my passion for physical therapy following a season ending knee injury as a collegiate athlete in 2008. My nine month recovery was challenging but also a blessing in disguise. My experience and appreciation  for the therapists and staff had such an impact and transformed my life forever. I consider myself privileged of the opportunity to help others improve their quality of life every single day.
