MELODI WILLIAMS – RN, EMT, COHN, CASE MANAGER
DIRECTOR, PATIENT SERVICES
Melodi started in healthcare almost 35 years ago as a medical technician, EMT and volunteer firefighter. After becoming a Registered Nurse, she spent many years working in the Emergency Room as well as gaining experience in critical care. During that time, she also became exposed to Occupational Health and has been in that field for 14 years. Feeling a connection to taking care of people that spend their days working to make things for all of us, Melodi decided to begin working full time as an Occupational Health Nurse for an area factory where she was able to help others as well as to learn a great deal about EHS. After over ten years in that position, she saw the opportunity to help other factories and industry that needed the expertise of a dedicated nurse but didn’t have the resources to provide one full time in-house. That led her to assembling a team of healthcare providers to offer such services to underserved industries throughout the region. Afterhours, Melodi enjoys travelling, doing volunteer work, and spending time with family.
Melodi primarily covers Barren, Butler, and Warren counties.
