Melani Dizon

Director of Education & Research

Melani Dizon (rhymes with Dijon and usually goes by Mel) joined the Davis Phinney Foundation in January 2018. She’s a former social worker, teacher, therapist and coach, and she worked as a freelance educator and writer for 25 years. She joined the Foundation because she was inspired by its mission to help people live well today. When she’s not writing or trying to organize all the things in life, you’ll find her doing CrossFit, trying to keep up some sort of streak, hanging out with her family and three pups, or drinking scalding hot-like-the-sun decaf chai.
