In 1993, Melody obtained her master’s degree in pediatrics and oncology, as well as her certification as a pediatric nurse practitioner from the University of California, San Francisco. The following year, she moved to Orange County and joined the SOCPA family in August of 1997. Melody’s specialties include constipation and encopresis.
