About Melissa

I am 48, a wife of 27 years and we have 3 daughters (ages 26,23,21). I recently moved to New Waverly, Tx from Friendswood, Tx to help care for my mother and father in law. I worked at my previous position for 7 yrs but resigned immediately when I saw they needed assistance. My father in law is in fairly good health but cannot manage everything himself. I needed to be closer to them. I must continue to work. I have been around and provided care to many elderly people since I was a child. I enjoy taking care of others and that is why I chose to be a Medical Assistant. I am particularly fond of older people. I think we can still learn a lot from our elders. I also feel the elderly people are not taken care of properly in our country.
