Back To Doctors

Dr. Melanie Smedley was a horse crazy girl by second grade, acquired an array of small animal pets during her childhood, and became hooked on bird-watching by the time she was in middle school. In high school, she realized she could combine her love of animals with a natural aptitude for the sciences by pursuing a career in veterinary medicine. She attended Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, for her undergraduate education, and then moved east to attend Cornell University's College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, New York. Dr. Smedley graduated in 1997, married, and moved to Connecticut.

Dr. Smedley worked full-time at MVC for 7 years. In 2004 she took an absence to stay home with her first child. Since then, she has worked part-time while enjoying being a full-time mom. Her professional interests include ophthalmology and general and preventative care. In addition to her two children, Dr. Smedley's household includes an English Setter named Lucy, a cat named Kiwi, her daughter’s guinea pigs Abby and Ariel and a variety of chickens.
