201250812_093403-1 (1)My name is Melissa and I was born and raised in Albuquerque with my two sisters. Since I was very little, I would always tell my family that I want to work with animals and be a veterinarian. I am currently going to school at the  University of New Mexico and getting dual Bachelor Degrees in Biology and Spanish with a minor in Chemistry. Soon, I will be applying to Veterinary School.  

I have always had animals around me and I would play doctor with my dog Ginger. We have always had a dog in the house. Right now, I have a Golden Retriever named Jax.

I started volunteering at Village Veterinary Hospital December 2013 and I got hired in November 2014. I absolutely love working here with everyone. I love meeting all of our clients and their little and big four legged animals.
