Melly was born in Florida and moved here with her family at 6 years old. She graduated from Syracuse Academy of Science in 2015.
Following high school, she enrolled at Onondaga Community College. There she fell in love with American Sign Language. Melly very much enjoyed the ASL classes and participated in the ASL Club as well.
Throughout high school, she fueled her love for dogs by volunteering at the CNY SPCA. Her current pup is a 3 year old Chihuahua named Mya. Having owned dogs all her life and being around dogs at the SPCA, Melly is excited to have the opportunity to continue working with canines. She is currently enrolled in the Karen Pryor Academy where she will soon become a certified dog trainer and further her career in the dog business.
