Although she misses the beach she enjoys spending time in Arizona with her husband, son, 2 chow chows, Tiberius and Nyota and 2 Persians, Viola and Winston.

Melissa has been in the veterinary industry since 2001, starting as a kennel technician, then a technician and now as a hospital manager. She would like to continue her career in veterinary medicine as a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager in the near future.
