Melissa leads the nursing Team at James River. She started her career as an LPN with Virginia Health Services in June 2009 as a medication nurse, later becoming the wound care nurse in 2013. While working at James River in 2019, she went back to school to obtain her RN license and became the Assistant Director of Nursing. Melissa went back to school in 2022 to receive her bachelor’s degree. She is grateful for the experiences in different areas of the building and believes it has provided her with a better understanding of how to help the team. In her free time she enjoys the beach, festivals, camping, and spending time with her kids, family and friends. Melissa has always enjoyed working in the geriatric population and feels there is so much to learn from this generation’s interesting experiences and stories. Over the years working at James River, it has become her home – not only the residents but with the staff as well.
