Mellanda joined our team in May of 2016. She graduated from California State University Fullerton in May of 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a concentration in Ecology and Evolution. Her passion for animals stems from their natural ability to bring out the best in people. They bring out the compassion in our hearts and strengthen our ability to love. Her ultimate goal is to work with wildlife and endangered species because she believes that animals play an important role in making the world a better place. She enjoys working here because she has the opportunity to help pets to the best of her abilities along her colleagues, who share the same love for animals as she does. Mellanda currently has three fur babies: a cat named Ongo and two Huskies named Grayson and Ciri, but has had many hamsters and even a guinea pig named Henry.
