Melissa’s love of animals meant that moving to Goddard Veterinary Group in January 2021 was an opportunity too good to miss. After over ten years working in the betting industry carrying out lots of roles she found a passion for Human Resources and studied for her Level 5 CIPD Diploma in Human Resources Management, qualifying in 2019. Melissa lives in Hertfordshire with her husband and son. She is an active part of the British Rottweiler Association with her Rottie ‘Ted’ and takes part in regular training and agility classes. She’s also the proud guardian of three tortoises which have been handed down within the family, with ages ranging from 75-50 years old so they definitely have the experience within the relationship!
