Melita was born in San Diego, CA. Her family moved to Texas while she was still a baby, so she’s practically a real Texan! Animals have always been a big part of her life and while growing up in Katy she had dogs, cats, fish, birds, rats and ferrets. As an adult Melita moved to Galveston and met the man who would become her husband. They married in 2008 and set off traveling the Caribbean on their live aboard sailboat. In 2016 Melita and her husband moved to Conroe and Tender Paws Animal Hospital had the good fortune to bring her on as a Receptionist. Melita and her husband live with Lily, a rescue Labrador Retriever. Melita says her favorite part of being a memeber of the Tender Paws team is helping people take care of their pets. During down time, Melita’s favorite thing to do is curling up with a good book.
