Mel has always had a passion for sports, starting with swimming and nippers from a young age and over the years getting involved in team sports such as soccer, netball, touch footy, and futsal.
Mel started pole having almost no dance experience prior, but after she enjoyed it so much when she joined a studio in 2011 to give it a go, she hasn’t turned back.
Over the years her love for pole has driven her to strength and flexibility training to continue improving and developing herself as a dancer and instructor.
Mel’s previous work in hospitality, her current role as a HR professional and her extensive sporting background brings her love for teamwork and working with people, together in a teaching role at Maitri.
Mel enjoys being out and about trying new things, and really loves to see students get those difficult moves they have been working on.
