Melanie has been with Banfield since 2016. Starting at the front desk as a Client Service Coordinator, her determination for a career in veterinary medicine led her to the more hands on role of Veterinary Assistant. Her goal is to follow in her mother's footsteps and become a Certified Veterinary Technician. Melanie enjoys working with patients of all species but is most fond of the opportunity to work with cats of all ages and temperaments. When not at work, she loves spending time with her beautiful cat, Jelly, and her finicky tortoise, Paola.
