Melissa grew up in the Green Mountain State in the sweet little town of Middlebury, Vermont. In 1996 she headed west and has called Colorado home ever since. With her forever love of animals and working with people she joined the veterinary field and has been part of the community for over 10 years. Recently she has taken a break to raise a family, but now she’s happy to be back! Her interests include gardening, cooking, and volunteering to support the arts and schools.
