A colleague shares:  

C&FD is lucky to have Melissa Petcu on the team!  She works so hard and compassionately for both clients and multidisciplinary co-workers.  She is such a smart therapist who persistently strives to find workable and realistic solutions for clients and their families.  She is always willing to go the extra mile to promote occupational therapy services and support her colleagues. She has a great rapport with everyone!
