Live Yes! Connect Facilitator: Melissa             Type of Arthritis: Arthritis

About this Live Yes! Connect Group:   

There are many people in this community that do not have an outlet for their questions and concerns. They feel alone. A program in Bakersfield would benefit the arthritis community and their family.

About: Melissa

I am a wife and mother of three amazing children. I am currently enrolled in a bachelor's program for forensic psychology. I have been in the medical field for 13 years and am currently an infusion coordination at a local rheumatology office. I have suffered from arthritis for over 10 years. My vision is to offer an outlet for patients who suffer from arthritis plus make sure they know they are not alone.

I have been a medical assistant for 13 years and am currently a infusion coordinator at a local rheumatology office. I am in the process of obtaining my bachelor’s degree in forensic psychology. I love to travel and spend time with my husband and 3 children.
