Melanie Lang is a 35-year-old, non-traditional vet student from the southeastern Pittsburgh suburb of Munhall. Melanie earned a bachelor's degree in English literature before eventually entering a career in business. After working for six years, she decided to completely change her path for something she felt more passionate about. So, just like that, she quit her job, moved to Philadelphia and enrolled at Penn Vet. Now in her fourth year of veterinary school, Melanie can hardly believe she's so close to being a doctor. Her main career goal is to eventually mentor and train other veterinarians. In her free time, Melanie likes to snuggle up with a glass of Bourbon and her two cats Rabbit and Dr. Butterfat. She's an avid runner, loves the outdoors and likes to play video games.
