PWN Featured Member: Melissa Sheehy, Founder & CEO, Balanced Fitness & Health

Melissa Sheehy

After working as an Occupational Therapist (OT) for a decade, I started Balanced Fitness & Health in 2015 with the goal of helping people live healthy, pain-free lives. My customized work with businesses and individuals has been very rewarding.

Our approach is to consider whole person’s well-being, self-esteem, and health. My unique blend of capabilities in OT, exercise and nutrition enable me to offer excellent results for corporate wellness and ergonomics, including injury prevention and worker safety.

I joined PWN to network and share what Balanced Fitness & Health can do in the workplace to create at work stretching programs that will improve productivity and prevent repetitive injuries. I also provide rehabilitation for those who have experienced injury or surgery.

This has been a very busy year for us. We recently moved to a new location in Hiawatha, and have added a physical therapist and administrative assistant to our team. We were also selected as a 2016 Invest in She contestant, which will be held at The Hotel Kirkwood on June 14, 2016.

I’m very excited to be involved in PWN and look forward to meeting more professional women and learning about their businesses!
