Melinda, Physician Assistant – Certified
Melinda is a Board Certified Physician Assistant with over eleven years of experience in practicing clinical Dermatology. Melinda relocated to the Colorado Springs area at the beginning of 2013 from Atlanta. Prior to her time practicing in Atlanta, Melinda practiced Dermatology in Phoenix. Melinda is excited to be living and working in the wonderful community of Colorado Springs. Not only does she love the area, but is thrilled to be near family and to be practicing in a community with such strong ties to the military, as her husband is a career pilot in the Air Force.
Melinda was born and raised in Montana, and graduated Magna cum Laude from the University of Montana with a Bachelor of Arts. She continued her professional studies at Midwestern University, Glendale, AZ, where she earned her Master’s in Physician Assistant Studies. Over the course of her career, Melinda has most enjoyed the strong bonds she has formed with her patients and she especially enjoys that dermatology brings the opportunity to care for patients of all ages.
When not pursuing her passion of practicing Dermatology, Melinda enjoys spending time with her family and exploring the amazing outdoor opportunities that Colorado has to offer.
