Despite the fact that Mel doesn’t work directly with our patients, the days she works here as our Finance Manager are her favorite days of the week (even Monday!). Her undeniable love of all animals made working at a vet clinic a perfect fit!
When she’s not busy crunching numbers and managing the business side of things, Mel often steals away to visit with some of our patients as they come in for their appointments. Being able to love on some furry friends is a perk of the job few others in her field get to enjoy!
At home, Mel is happily married. Together, she and her husband have four kids and three grandbabies. Their ever-growing fur family includes a snuggle-loving dog named Charlee, an independent cat named Kitty, two hilariously entertaining Nigerian Dwarf goats (Barney and Betty), and eight chickens: Gertie, Ginger, Sally, May, Debs, Jan, Marsha, and Rose. Ginger is a hugger, Gertie sits on all the eggs all day, every day, and Rose is the leader at the top of the pecking order.
In her spare time, Mel enjoys doing yard work, playing with the animals and spending time with family (mostly the grandbabies). As a mother, Mel feels that her greatest achievement is having raised, or helped to raise, four wonderful humans. She is incredibly proud of her kids and their many accomplishments, and can't help but think that she and her husband played a little part in that.
