Melissa became a Veterinary Assistant because she wanted to be able to be the voice of the animals she treats. Her goal with every patient visit is to make the pet as comfortable as possible and to reassure the owners that their pets will be cared for with compassion and love. She understands that while pets are with us, we are responsible for their care and safety and she takes it very seriously.
Her family includes her parents and her chi-weenies Duke, DJ and Smokey. One of Melissa’s favorite quotes is by Jorge Luis Borges. “So, plant your own gardens and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers."
