Melissa grew up in Mesa, AZ and is happy to continue to call the East Valley home. She is located in the East Valley satellite office of Arizona Pain & Spine Institute, and has been with the practice since 2018.
Melissa has worked in many facets of the nursing field, including gaining hospital experience in such areas as Telemetry and Emergency Room care. Her father also pursued a career in the nursing field, and is credited with peeking Melissa's interest in health care at the young age of 19. After over fifteen years in the health care field, Melissa is grateful to have found her passion caring for others. She finds being a Nurse Practitioner to be the most rewarding position of her career, and feels specializing in Pain Management means having the most positive impact in patient's lives. Everyday presents new challenges, and she is glad to be a part of the improvement process!
When Melissa isn’t in the office, she can be found being the best mom she can be for her two wonderful boys! She also enjoys traveling and striking a yoga pose.
