Staff Spotlight Vlog: Kelly & Melana
Welcome Back to our Staff Spotlight Vlog Series
Welcome back to another episode of our Staff Spotlight Vlog series! Meet Melana and Kelly, two amazing ladies who work at our recently opened New Bern clinic! They have been working hard to reach out to the community to make connections and get viable information for meeting the needs of kiddos and families within and around Craven County. They are also working hard to ensure that the all pediatric offices, daycares and schools are aware of the services Carolina Therapy Connection provides.
