Melissa John-Pendleton brings considerable health care administrative experience to her position as our Office Manger. She has worked with the partners since 1994. Melissa is the person to call if you have any questions about our treatment programs or services. She is also ready to help you understand your insurance coverage, billing questions and to schedule your appointments. Melissa is the “hub” of Foothills Physical Therapy. You can often see her running, hiking 4,000 footers and, most recently, running up and down mountains in New England Winter Wild races—and placing, too! Closer to home, you’ll find her gardening and frolicking with her two dogs Hunny and Winnifred!
Becky Larson is a vital link in our administrative staff. Patient scheduling, communicating with insurance companies and dealing with all the odd ball personalities of the physical therapists are just some of her exemplary skills at Foothills. Beyond her work at Foothills, Becky loves “glamour camping” in the wilds of New Hampshire, cooking and hiking. We think that coming from a family of 12 and having twin daughters of her own has prepared her well for being a part of the Foothills family!
Chelsea Ahern may be the first person you meet at the front desk. She’ll get you checked in, scheduled and will assist you with your insurance needs. She is a recent graduate of Southern New Hampshire University, with a bachelor’s degree in healthcare management. Chelsea brings a calm presence to the front desk, often juggling multiple tasks to meet the needs of the moment. In her spare time, she volunteers at her daughter’s school and enjoys time in the garden and playing with her new puppy, Junie.
Jamie Taylor is the newest addition to the front desk team at Foothills and may be the first person you will see when you come in for your appointment. She can help you with appointment scheduling and answer questions you may have about logistics. In her free time, she loves spending time with her nieces and nephews, enjoying floating escapades on the Merrimack River, time at Hampton Beach or concerts at Meadowbrook in Gilford. We’re grateful for the fun, hardworking energy she brings to her work at Foothills!
