Hi all! My name is Melanie and am a Native of tri-cities Tennessee. Recently my spouse retired from the Army, and we decided to plant our roots here in good ole Tennessee. I am a Licensed Veterinary Technician in Tennessee and North Carolina. I earned my GED and Associate of Applied Science degree at Central Carolina Community College in Sanford, North Carolina. While at college I served as a Student Ambassador for two consecutive years, volunteered for spay and neuter clinics, worked an externship at a Sanford Animal Hospital and was hired immediately after becoming licensed. My Zen is hiking, kayaking, and dirt bikes. Me and my wife have six cats and one dog. Currently, my goal is to earn my bachelor’s degree in biology. I love working with animals and seeing the smiling faces of every individual I encounter.
