Growing up with an outdoorsy family, Melanie learned early on how to be self-reliant and survive even the harshest conditions. This helped her prepare her mentally for her life as a trauma surgeon. As a distinguished doctor in her field, Melanie splits her time between treating patients, lecturing at her alma mater, and spending time outdoors practicing her survival skills. She and her husband are proud preppers, and they speak at their local community center about emergency preparedness and basic first-aid whenever they can.
