Introducing the Y’s Wellness Nurse Coordinator: Melisa Pelikan, RN

Meet Melisa Pelikan! Melisa is our on-site, registered Wellness Nurse Coordinator from Stamford Health. She comes to our Y with 30 years of experience in treating people in both inpatient and outpatient settings, community outreach and education, clinical research, and patient advocacy. She spent much of her time working with people in neuroscience and related specialties while also spending time in urology and infectious disease practices.

Given her career-long interest in neuroscience and the chronic nature of many of the disease processes, she developed an interest in sustainable health and wellness habits for co-existing and thriving with alterations in health. Melisa supports practical, person-centered suggestions for success in seeking and maintaining health and she recognizes and values an informed approach.

Melisa offers varied office hours at the Y for members to stop by and chat, ask a question, or get a referral:

  • Tuesdays from 4:00-7:00 PM
  • Thursdays from 7:00-10:00 AM
