She attended Physician Assistant school at The University of Alabama at Birmingham. Prior to being a PA, she was a high school teacher and actuarial analyst. She has worked in Psychiatry for the last 3 years and has an immense interest in neurology. Same organ, different look, as she’d like to say! Melissa is looking forward to learning under the mentorship and supervision of Dr. Panjeti-Moore, Epileptologist. Her professional passion is providing accessible education to help her patients take part in their care planning. Understanding the many different intricacies of Epilepsy and learning how to improve the quality of life for her patients is most important in her profession.
Outside of work, Melissa can be found spending time with her family, reading, trying out new restaurants in DFW, listening to podcasts and the same Top 40 Pop playlist from 2008, recreationally gardening (taking any advice here), and planning travels.
