Hi! My name is Melanie Tackett, I am a Bay Area transplant from Southern California. I moved to the Bay Area in 2012, when I attended San Francisco State University. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a concentration in Marine Biology and Limnology. My fascination with fish and whales was a huge driving factor in what I studied in college. I am so lucky to have received hands-on experience in college doing fish husbandry!
My passion for animals has been present since my youth where I grew up and cared for many different types of pets including; birds, cats, chickens, dogs, fish, frogs, and lizards!
After moving to San Francisco for college, I found myself in the fitness industry where I spent a few years gaining managerial experience, helping grow a community-oriented company, and finding a passion for strength training.
In my free time, I can be found at the nearest fitness studio or on a hike in the East Bay with my 5-year old Australian Shepherd, Levi.
I am honored to be with VetnCare and I hope to help keep your pets happy and healthy in any way possible!
