Meet Missie, our Operations Manager. Missie has worked at Frontier since June 2009.
So, do you go by Missie or do you have any nicknames?
Missie is actually a nickname short for Melissa. When I first interviewed I remember them telling me, “We really like you, but we have to do something about your name!” At the time I think I was Melissa number 5! It is kind of funny though when a pet comes in named Missy… clients do tend to get a chuckle from that!

In your words, what is your job at Frontier?
I am the Operations Manager here at Frontier Veterinary Hospital. I work very hard to make sure that the day to day operations of the hospital keep running smoothly. I wear a lot of different hats throughout the day

Tell us a little-known fact about you!
I’m originally from a small town in Colorado, and am obsessed with the Denver Broncos! All of my pets have their own Broncos gear, and Football Sunday is quite an event in our house! I am lucky enough that my husband lets me have my own “lady cave” with all of my Broncos signs and gear up on the walls year round.
