Melissa is one of the sweetest people you could ever meet-we are so blessed to have her patient, professional, honest, kind and helpful talents here at GAC. She started working here in 2010, and is one of those people who had a seamless entry. It immediately felt as though she belonged here with us. Melissa began working with animals at a boarding & daycare facility, knowing at once that working with animals is what she wanted to do with her life.
She is a 100% San Diego local, born and raised, and loves the SD lifestyle. She is also known for loving the cold weather, which gives her the opportunity to curl up with a warm blanket, a hot mug of tea, and surrounded by the company of her dogs. Melissa loves spending her time outdoors, running, hiking and spending time with her best buddies: "Blitz", her miniature pinscher; and little "Gus," her Chihuahua (who recently won third place in the Most Prideful Dog contest). She is so proud of them, the loves of her life, and when she talks about them, she just beams!
