Office Manager

Mel started with Cooinda Cat Resort almost 5 years ago as a casual Kitty Carer in operations. She was then trained in the office and promoted to office manager only 6 months after she started. As office manager Mel looks after the day to day running of the office and also steps into operations as needed or when Kate is absent to administer medication and oversee the operations team. Mel is the friendly voice on the end of the phone or the fist point of call when you enter the office. She can assist you with your booking, including Kitty Kab, feline health advice, reports on your cats wellbeing during their stay and any other enquiries you may have.

Mel has only 1 feline friend at home, Floyd, who is a very funny rescue cat that she has had for 6 years. If she had the room I know she would definitely adopt more cats!
