Compassionate is the word used most often when describing Dr. Melissa James, a local vet, and her care for animals and their humans. She enjoys the stories and relationships she sees in her clinic. She is married and has 2 children 6 and 4. Besides spending time with her children she owns a hobby farm and that keeps her busy. Her role models were her grandfather who was also a vet and brother who while very level headed still has fun. Also shown is LT. Dan the office mascot.
