Melissa Caldwell, Practice Manager

I have been working in the medical field for the past 19 years. I am the Practice Manager at Dynamic Foot and Ankle Center and it’s an absolute pleasure for me to service our patients and community. It is important to me that each of our patients and family members have a memorable experience each time they are here in our offices. I enjoy being able to build relationships with my Dynamic Foot and Ankle Center team, our patients, and our communities. I am the mom to two future leaders, Bethany and Bryce and a fur baby named Chance. I enjoy spending time at the beach, watching Virginia Tech play football, trying new makeup techniques, and cheering for my son on the football field and baseball diamond. I look forward to helping you feel great one step at a time.

I have been in the medical field for over 20 years. I thoroughly enjoy patient care. I was a lead medical assistant instructor for an Allied Health College for several years. Patients often ask me, “why feet”- when you consider other parts of the body, feet are not always a bad thing. I enjoy reading non-fiction books, spending time with my family and dog, and going to the beach.
