About Melissa

From the moment I graduated high school, all I have wanted to do is take care of people. I have 13 years experience as an EMT, 22 years experience working on homecare, 2 years experience in surgery, and 7 years experience in Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, Throat specialty). I also have over 2 years experience teaching both the administrative and clinical sides of the Medical Assisting program. I love taking care of people and working independently. The satisfaction I feel knowing I made a difference in someone's life is invaluable to me. I love all of my career choices. Together, all of my experience has made me a very patient, knowledgeable, and well-rounded health care professional.
