While Timber Ridge Animal Medical Center was in the planning and building process she was a relief veterinarian at several different hospitals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and at the Emergency Animal Hospital of Colin County.
Dr. Melanie has dreamed of being a veterinarian since she was knee-high. She grew up in Houston, TX, and made her way to College Station as soon as she could. She earned her Bachelor in Biomedical Science from Texas A&M in 1999 and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A&M in 2003.
Throughout her college career, she spent her non-school time working at a small animal clinic during the day and waiting tables at night. Her love of animals, people, and medicine has always been a driving force to help her reach her goals.
Some of Dr. Melanie’s special interests include internal medicine, dermatology, cardiology, and soft tissue surgery. She is experienced in everything from routine procedures to intensive care and advanced surgical and dental procedures.
Dr. Melanie and her husband share their home with their two daughters, two dogs, Mabel and Frankie, two cats, Kinney and Judge Roy Bean, and a fish tank or two. She also claims Willie, but he is pretty sure he owns the clinic and we are all just visiting. Their house is always a happening place and they couldn’t imagine things any different. In her free time, she enjoys spending time and having fun with her family and friends, going to neighborhood and community events, cooking, and going to sporting events and you may catch her at a refit or yoga class too. Dr. Melanie feels blessed every day because she gets to do what she loves, using her veterinary knowledge and skills to help others.
