Dr. Melanie Krecker was born in Harrisburg, PA. She moved around quite a bit, but most of her family are from the Bellwood and Tyrone areas. After veterinary school, she relocated to Altoona to be closer to family. She went to vet school at the University College Dublin in Dublin, Ireland. During her time abroad, she travelled a great deal and has been all over Ireland as well as in Scotland, London, Portugal, Spain, and Amsterdam. To this day she still enjoys travelling and hopes to go abroad again someday, especially back to Ireland.
In her free time, Dr. Krecker enjoys hiking, reading, baking, learning, running, and horseback riding. Her personal pets include a Westie named Bella and two cats named Sage and Hope. She also frequently fosters cats and dogs from the local humane society who require extra medical attention.
Dr. Krecker is the newest addition to Blair Animal Hospital and is excited to join the team at BAH. She is greatly looking forward to giving back to the community with excellent veterinary care.
