Melanie, BS

Melanie was raised in California and moved to Arizona when she was 13. She has a Bachelor's degree in Veterinary Science from the University of Arizona. Her love for animals started when she was very young, and she knew she wanted to be in the veterinary field when she was only 9 years old! Melanie started her career at a hospital who only treated cats and dogs, and wanted to join our team to pursue her true passion working with exotic pets. Melanie grew up with dogs, cats, mice and hamsters, and when she got older, she adopted bearded dragons, axolotls, frogs, snakes, guinea pigs, rabbits and chinchillas. She now has two dogs (Onward, a very loving and energetic Australian Shepherd Mix, and Harper, a shy and sweet Maltipoo) as well as a senior guinea pig named Ramsey! In her free time, she likes to read World War II fiction, paint pet portraits, and spend time with her animals. Melanie is very excited to have joined the AZEAH family and has plans to grow within the company to continue helping exotic pets in need!
