Melissa has been with Wake Ortho since 2006. She graduated from Gannon University, Erie PA in 1991, with a Bachelor’s of Science degree and her Physician Assistant degree. 

After graduation, she lived in West Palm Beach, FL where she practiced in Orthopedics for 16 years before relocating to the Raleigh area to be closer to family. She has a passion for all aspects of patient care from the office, emergency department, hospital floor care, and operating room. She is devoted to heling others. Not only her patients and the surgeons with who she works, but all others who are involved in the entire patient care team. She is proud to be part of such a strong team of physicians and PAs at Wake Ortho. Outside of medicine, she is committed to her husband and 2 children and loves to spend time with them. In her spare time, she also enjoys the beach, reading, walking, playing with her 2 dogs and encouraging her children so they may accomplish their dreams as well. She is a member of the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS), American Academy of Physician Assistant (AAPA) and the North Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants (NCAPA).
