Melissa graduated from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA in 2000 with a BA in English and began her professional career as a high school English teacher. Personal experience as the mother of a chronically ill child led to her interest in pediatric and family health, and in 2011 she graduated from Jacksonville University’s BSN program. Melissa is currently a graduate student pursing a Master of Science degree in Nursing Education. Melissa has nearly 10 years of bedside nursing experience in both adult Med/Surg Telemetry and Neonatal Intensive Care. She received her nursing certification in Neonatal Intensive Care in 2015. She is a 2018 nominee for the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. Melissa maintains a strong passion for promoting maternal/fetal health and healthy children and families through education.
