About Melissa

Hello! My name is Melissa and I am a college graduate with a BS in Biology from Fairleigh Dickinson University. In school I played volleyball for my university. I also did continuous babysitting for two families for 3 years and my senior year I coached a club volleyball team. In the past I have volunteered in the nursery of a hospital working along side the nurses. As well, I volunteered in nursing homes helping with activities and meal time. I was also able to traveled to Costa Rica to play volleyball and here I got the opportunity to volunteer and work with special needs and underprivileged children. I had an internship in Budapest, Hungary shadowing doctors in geriatrics and rehabilitation. In this internship I spent my days observing doctors and learning about patient care. I also shadowed a Doctor of geriatric medicine for the summer of 2017. Here I was apart of the memory clinic and learned about patients with Demetria/Alzheimer's. I am now taking steps toward a career in medicine or medical research. I also have CPR training but my certification has expired. After all of the experiences I've had in my life I have come to find out that I get along very well with the older generation. Even while in Budapest I was unable to speak the language, however, I was able to make friends with the patients throughout the hospital. I look forward to the opportunity to make new friends! Thank you!
