Melissa has worked in healthcare for many years and has a great passion for helping others. She feels very blessed to be the new Coordinator of the PCSH and enjoys being a part of offering encouragement, support and education to cancer patients and their families.
Melissa moved to the Twin Lakes Area in 2004 and resides in Gassville with her husband, Christian, and son, Tristan. She enjoys spending time with her family and takes pride in being a mom. She enjoys canoeing, scenic country drives and hikes as well as church activities and Bible studies.
Melissa has experienced losing a grandfather to cancer but has also had many loved ones diagnosed with cancer survive. She knows firsthand that there is so much hope to be had with a cancer diagnosis and many moments to celebrate along the way.
Melissa is passionate about promoting the services offered at PCSH and making those newly diagnosed with cancer aware that they can come there for support and information. She can be contacted by calling the PCSH at (870) 508-CARE (2273) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
