Office Assistant 


Lynn is Dr. Melco's wife of 20+ years; Lynn helps out at the clinic a few times a week answering phones and doing other odds and ends as needed. When she is not at the clinic helping she is spending time with their children at the various activities they're involved in. Lynn is an animal lover and admits that if Dr. Melco allowed her to bring home the animals she has fallen in love with, they would probably have a zoo at their house, so instead she helps friends and other family members with taking care of their animals when needed.
