Mela graduated from Black Hills State University in December 2013 with a triple major in Corporate and Mass Communications with an emphasis in Photography and Graphic Design.
Mela joined the Belle Chiropractic team in 2022 and manages the front desk, with her previous work experience she has a knack for marketing (check out her handy work on our social media!) and office administrative duties.
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Mela has claimed Spearfish as her basecamp for the last 10 years and is fond of the local community and exploring the beautiful Black Hills with her husband Matt, her black lab Loki, and their German Shepherd mix, Anyanka. In the winter, you may find her at our local ski resort, Terry Peak, where she is an PSIA-AASI Level II certified snowboard instructor with certifications in Adaptive Snowboarding and Children & Senior specializations. When not working, she is volunteering as a board member for Hobo’s Healing Heart. Her favorite part of her job is putting a smile on every patients face!!!
