From a tender age, Melissa realised that she wanted a career in the equine industry. Given her impressive horse-related CV, this is obviously an ambition she’s fulfilled.
Melissa’s qualifications include a BSc in Equine Science from Hartpury College gained in 2001 and a Post-Graduate Diploma (MSc) in McTimoney Animal Manipulation from the McTimoney College of Chiropractic gained in 2006
She is also a qualified Specialist Saddle Fitter and has excellent knowledge of equestrian nutrition having worked with an equine nutrition company. Melissa ran a successful McTimoney equine and canine chiropractic practice for 17 years, developing her knowledge through experience, research and conferences, specialising in biomechanics and associated injuries.
“My passion lies within soundness and performance and the rehabilitation of the equine athlete,” she says. “My role with Agria allows me to offer support and facilitate the field sales team activities, to ensure positive customer relations, and to establish solid and long-lasting relationships with vets.” When Melissa isn’t busy in the office, she spends time with her family who “with exception of my husband all have four legs!” This includes her retired homebred horse, dogs and a cat.
