Melissa was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and moved to New Mexico in 2004. She graduated in 2012 from CNM with an Associates of Applied Science in Veterinary Technology. Melissa has a Labrador Retriever named Bear and two cats, Ava and Willow. When she is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her daughters, learning to play the bass guitar, cross-stitching, crocheting, and listening to live local music. Some of Melissa's favorite things about veterinary medicine are getting to interact with great clients, providing quality care to pets, and being a part of a great team of professionals. Melissa is one of our registered technicians and has been a part of our team since 2016.
