Melissa is a critical care nurse at Henrico Doctor’s Hospital where she enjoys teaching her patients about how their medication works in their bodies and how what they eat affects their health. She was also an assistant teacher in a one room schoolhouse for missionary children in northern Pakistan in 2006. Melissa has substituted for Biology classes at Westminster in the past and graduated from Westminster herself in 2000. She is also fluent in Spanish and has studied abroad in Wales and Mexico. Being a nurse, her strengths are in anatomy and physiology and cellular biology.
My favorite part of nursing is patient education. I enjoy teaching people about how amazing their body is and how to take care of their health. I loved my time substituting for biology at Westminster and look forward to teaching this year. I hope to show my students the majesty of God through the examination and understanding of His creation.
