Melissa Barber carries a Master of Science (MSc) degree and her areas of focus have been tracking and improving health outcomes and eliminating health disparities. She has worked in health research for over 10 years – from basic science to epidemiology to practice-based research. Her research homes have included the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), and other acclaimed health centers. She received her undergraduate degrees in Biology, Spanish, and a minor in Chemistry. She studied yoga at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Massachusetts and Rishikesh YogPeeth in India and is a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT). Her interest in the therapeutic benefits of yoga has brought her to different workshops and an advanced study in anatomy, physiology, body mechanics, and ergonomics. Melissa is a certified nutritionist and has additional training in addressing food allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances and personalizing diets. She served as a Peace Corps Health Volunteer in Perú and has worked as a clinic coordinator and interpreter in different Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) locally and internationally. She loves nature and the arts and is energized by a wide array of activities - from yoga to running to stand up paddle boarding. Melissa calls Portland, OR and San Diego, CA home and considers the world her backyard.
