Helping Multiple Sclerosis Patients in the Midwest
I love my work because MS is a challenging and the continual advancements in the treatment of MS brings great hope. SMC has a great team of very knowledgeable staff working with MS to meet the needs of our patients.

Melissa has been a registered nurse for over 20 years and completed furthering her nursing degree at Clarkson College in 2020. She originally completed her associate degree in 1999 and her bachelor’s degree in 2020.
Melissa has a history of working in various settings. Prior to starting in the MS clinic, I worked in hospice and home health for 9 years. She has been working at SMC in the MS clinic since 2016 and "loves it!" In the future, she hopes to become an MS-certified nurse.
Melissa grew up in Wahoo and enjoys working and living here. She has four amazing children who will grow up in the same hometown as herself. Their extended family lives nearby which is very helpful. She has two sisters and a mother who are also nurses! She recently got a new addition to the family, Enzo, a very energetic Aussiedoodle. She married to Eric in October 2022 and welcomed two more children into the family. And, recently welcomed her first grandchild! "I'm so in love him!" she said.
Outside Interests & Hobbies
"I love to spend time outside when the weather is nice gardening. I also like camping, bike riding, running, and kayaking. I have a love for travel and experiencing new things. Recently, we purchased two paddle boards, so that will be fun to experience this summer."
