AUTHORESS CALI-Born December 10th 1970. I have overcome many challenges. With a degree in business administration. I have gained control of life's obstacles by maintaining my focus on education. I currently hold a certification in substance abuse and domestic violence counseling, working with at risk youth, homeless, and geriatric adults.
I am presently continuing my education within the healthcare field as I enjoy helping people of all diversities. I have had a love for writing from a very young age through poetry, short stories, and inspirational post. Throughout this journey we call life I have smiled, cried, prayed and continued to know that through faith, persistence, and love I can and will achieve anything Imaginable.
I hold dear to my heart an empathy for our youth and older adults. While writing is an outlet for the many things that may occur from day to day it is also my way of telling life's day-to-day sorrows, laughs, and memories.

Robert Porter is the physical rehabilitation treatment supervisor at MedVet Mandeville and has been on staff since 2006.
Robby has worked in canine rehabilitation since 1998 and is looked at by his peers as one of the pioneers in his field. He has a strong knowledge base in kinesiology and a great interest in positive training approaches to therapeutic exercises. His MedVet patients from the gulf coast region not only benefit from his exercises but also love to perform them for him.
Robby has studied gait analysis using slow motion cameras which has helped develop many exercises used all over the world today. His many self-produced “How To” canine exercise videos help spread this knowledge and have helped others develop their skills as therapists.
Robby Porter is also one of MedVet’s Media Managers, writing as well as creating visual content for our social media.
Just like humans, pets may need rehabilitation after an accident or medical procedure, or to help manage a chronic condition.
MedVet Rehabilitation practitioners provide effective and personalized physical rehabilitation using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to maximize the opportunity for full recovery. MedVet Rehabilitation Practitioners have completed advanced training in veterinary physical rehabilitation.
Many pets respond well to rehabilitation, including those with orthopedic, neurologic and medical conditions. We also use rehabilitation to help pets live a more complete and active life by providing geriatric support, obesity management and athletic conditioning.
CoHealth Checkup cohosts, fran melmed (lower-case letters intended) and Carol Harnett, finally get to do what they've always wanted to do: Host a Car-Talk-like radio show on anything and everything related to employer-provided health, wellness and benefits. There are no promises that this will be a polictically-correct program, although no person or company will be maligned or otherwise attacked via this 30-minute conversation.
They're going to start with the topic of employees involved with caregiving, but will open up the phone lines and invite your participation and questions.
