Melissa is a kind and caring person who was my dog walker/sitter for my pit/lab rescue Cecelia since she was a teenager. She even did some overnights for me. I never worried when Melissa was caring for Cece as I knew she was safe and always in good hands.
She would be an excellent addition to your team.
