Melanie assists with client education, staff training and managing the office. She loves helping take care of the patients and has endless compassion for animals paired with great enthusiasm for education. Melanie has over twenty years of experience as a vet tech and even worked at an emergency clinic for three years. Working at Asheville has by far been her favorite, as everyone treats each other like family – colleagues, pet parents and pet patients alike! Melanie once made a trip to Costa Rica to help run a three-day spay/neuter clinic. At home she has two dogs – Tully and Tallulah, four cats – Jemma, Winston, Sherman and Allen and various chickens and ducks. In her spare time, you can find her hiking, reading or practicing yoga.
