University College Dublin School of Veterinary Medicine
I am a 2014 Graduate of University College Dublin School of Veterinary Medicine in rainy Dublin, Ireland and have worked in Michigan veterinary hospitals since. Although I enjoy both medicine and surgery, I have a special interest in clinical animal behavior. I also enjoy reading, horseback riding, and singing in the church choir. Gardening and outdoor activities are also up there in terms of what one could find me doing on any given off day. I am also an unabashed nerd and lover of Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, the MCU & etc.
I have Rory the derpy retired racing Greyhound, and three cats. Of the cats there is Pudge, the stuffy English butler, Declan, the 'middle child', and Eskarina or Essie for short, the kitten of 10 months and stealer of spoons. Although it doesn't seem like it, I do love both dogs and cats... maybe I'm a little partial to cats. ;) Bringing up the last of the pets is Loki, the parakeet. Loki got his name as a trickster by imitating the chirp the smoke detector makes when the battery is low... I must have changed it 2 or 3 times before I realized it was the bird!

Kansas State University
As the granddaughter of a veterinarian, Dr. Melissa James never really had a different goal in life for a career path. She grew up on Cape Cod surrounded by a few pets, and loved any second she got to spend with any other animals - whether that was sea creatures, summer camp farm animals or local lesson horses. She got her Bachelor’s of Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst as a Commonwealth Scholar, was a member of the UMASS marching band, attended the University of Glasgow as a junior-year-abroad, and graduated Cum Laude. Dr. James then ventured west to Kansas State University for her DVM degree, and fell in love with the great plains and the midwest and soaked herself in every opportunity to explore livestock and production animal medicine. After graduation she spent 10 years learning and growing in northwest Ohio before moving to southwest Iowa where she now resides with her two children.
The family currently has three dogs - a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon “Astro”, a Shih Tzu-Yorkie cross “Wall-E” and a German Wirehaired Pointer “Jedi”. They also have a sibling-pair of black cats “Ringo” and “George”, and two horses - a Quarter Horse “Clementine” and a Thoroughbred “Peter Pan”.
Dr. James is always interested in new and exciting things, and probably has a few too many hobbies. These include: community involvement including leadership roles in a local women’s group and Rotary International, running - currently in her second year in the Iowa Trail Run Series, horseback riding, playing the baritone horn, hiking, and of course supporting her kids in their many endeavors and activities. Dr James is an avid “locavore” and loves checking out local restaurants, shops and experiences wherever she goes.
