Melissa VA

Melissa came on board with us in September of  2018 as a member of the Veterinary Assistant team.  We were happy she became a part of the team after her experiences here as a co-op Student from the Animal Care Attendant program at Durham College during the winter and spring of that year.

Monitoring for patient comfort, and providing friendly and caring assistance to our veterinarians and technicians can keep her pretty busy but she is always watching for pets who are nervous and need a little extra TLC to feel comfortable when they come into the hospital. 

Deep compassion and love for animals has lead Melissa and her husband Mike to be Foster volunteers for Dog Rescue. Their home can be quite full as a result.  Her special furry family members are Beans & Rice, both beautiful Boxers. She can also tell you about being a big snake owner if you would like to know!
