Melanie Kent

Certified Lifeguard

Melanie is a certified lifeguard and swimming instructor that has loved being in the water, since she was young! She enjoys teaching children and adults in a fun and creative recreational setting!

Melanie plans to pursue a career in Health Sciences and enjoys combining her two passions: swimming and teaching. She loves working with all of the amazing people at Enable Occupational Therapy and looks forward to helping her students learn to love the water as well!

Melanie assisted with Enable OT’s Richmond Swim Camp in July 2019. She is passionate about the Executive Functioning work she does with the OT’s, especially when delivering elements of the Bronze Cross program, such as the Ladder Approach. (Her demo “save” of our 6 foot 3 Recreation Therapist was the most memorable part of our Swim Camp!) Her patience and dedication to clients has made her an instrumental part of the Enable OT team.

Melanie enjoys playing sports, volunteering, and expressing herself through the piano and fine arts.
