Melissa inspires so many to work hard, give back and do good works in our community. She has volunteered 7 days a week including holidays with no paid salary through the Richmond Wildlife Center. A nonprofit wildlife hospital dedicated to critically sick and injured wildlife. Amongst executing Veterinary orders to provide the best care possible to wildlife patients, and tending to business matters she also conducts education programs to future generations providing them with a better understanding of the world around them. No one deserves more recognition than she right now. I pledge to donate back any portion I receive to the Richmond Wildlife Center.
