Reinventing Healthy Living | Melanie Carvell | TEDxUMary

Let’s face it, many, if not most, people work in jobs with little to no activity. We develop routines that aren’t affective to our overall health. Melanie Carvell hopes to change that so that people are more active and stick to better routines.

Melanie Carvell is the Director of the Sanford Women’s Health Clinic in Bismarck, North Dakota. Originally from the small town of Mott, ND, Melanie is a proud graduate of the University of North Dakota.

Melanie is an accomplished triathlete who is a six-time All American, representing USA Triathlon on eight World Championship teams, and winning a bronze medal in Germany in 1999.

She has trained at the U.S. Olympic Training Center with the national cycling team, was named North Dakota’s Sportscasters/Sportswriters Athlete of the Year, chosen as the North Dakota Prairie Rose State Games Athlete of the Year, and received the “Picture of Health” award from the State of North Dakota for being a leader in women’s health.
