Melissa qualified in 2016 after completing her Veterinary science degree at Sparsholt college. During her training for placement she worked in a busy vet clinic, developing her clinical skills. Whilst carrying out her degree she worked part time at an out-of-hours clinic in Winchester, where she experienced a wide range of emergencies and peculiar cases.
Whilst working here a little stray puppy was brought in, that soon became hers and is now known as Fig! As well as Fig she also has a Jack Russell cross called Poppet and two cats, Kakariki and Bertie.
She has found a passion for animal behaviour working with birds and small animals. In her spare time, she enjoys dog-walking, baking, sewing and reading.
