Melanie has an in-depth knowledge of many departments in Canyon Ranch Lenox that is of benefit to resort guests. Not only is she a native to Lenox, Mass., before becoming a Nurse and joining the Medical Department ten years ago, she worked within the Dining Room and in Guest Services. She also has experience as a residential school nurse, as well as a medical nurse educator.
In her multi-faceted role at Canyon Ranch Lenox, Melanie applies the wisdom of nursing icon Jean Watson in everything she does, which is simply: “Caring is the essence of nursing.” Some of her many tasks involve assessing the health education needs of guests and developing and initiating plans for teaching and counseling. To do so, she collaborates with Physicians and Health & Performance practitioners, then implements prescribed treatment plans for resort guests in-house and virtually post Canyon Ranch visits.
On days off, Melanie loves to spend time with her two sons, ages 9 and 10. They especially enjoy alpine skiing trips and beach vacations, when possible. Words of advice? “You have the opportunity to be the best version of yourself every day.”
