Born and raised in Northern New Jersey, Melissa grew up in a very family-oriented household. Despite having family-roots in the medical and nursing fields, she didn’t realize how much she wanted to help others build a family, until she experienced what she considers to be the greatest love – having a son of her own.
With over 10 years’ experience as a nurse, Melissa’s familiarity with infertility in her family has fueled her passion for creating one-on-one connections with her patients. “Going through an infertility journey can cause a patient to feel very exposed, making it difficult for them to ask questions. That’s what I love about being a nurse at WINFertility- we create an accepting environment for patients to ask those uncomfortable questions that they don’t want to ask anyone else.”
Don’t be afraid to ask anything and everything. All questions are vital, and opening the door to a relationship between nurse and patient can change their perspective on the difficult infertility process.
