Melissa was only a little girl when she decided that she would one day work hands-on with animals. The veterinary field has always called to her, and she knew she wouldn’t be satisfied doing anything else. That’s why Melissa became a Veterinary Technician! She’s a proud member of the Animal Hospital of Lanesville family .
Melissa is originally from New York, and volunteered at a local animal shelter during her high school years. She studied veterinary medicine for a time before moving to Kentucky in 2009, where she went back to school to study phlebotomy at Spencerian College. Next, Melissa landed a job at a veterinary clinic in Corydon, gaining invaluable skills that serve her well to this day. She moved to Indiana in 2011, and joined the Animal Hospital of Lanesville team in December of 2019. Melissa particularly likes performing blood draws and helping with surgical procedures, but her favorite part of her job is getting to meet new pet owners and their adorable companions every day.
When she’s not at work, Megan likes spending time with family and friends, gardening, enjoying outdoor activities like four-wheeling and kayaking, and doting on her own pets at home. She and her husband have two young girls, and the family shares their lives with multiple animal companions. They have five cats and two outdoor strays that they care for, as well as three loveable dogs: Cooper the Beagle who is getting grumpier with old age; a Miniature Dachshund named Sophie; and a puppy named Tillie, adopted from the Fayette County Humane Society.
