From a very young age Melissa found herself around all kinds of animals. She was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona and grew up having owned cats, dogs, chickens, tortoises, guinea pigs, horses, goats and much more! She knew she would eventually work with animals for a career. She has spent the last 5 years caring for animals by working in shelters, kennels, and animal hospitals. She’s excited to care for all different kinds of patients at Arizona Exotic Animal Hospital.
