After earning her journalism degree from the University of Missouri, Melissa Miller spent 12 years working as a reporter, photographer and editor at various newspapers before coming to Purina in 2013. As Senior Communications Specialist of Pet Influential Communications, Melissa’s articles, photography and videography can be found in Today’s Breeder magazine, the Purina® Pro Club®website and the Purina® Pro Club® Update newsletters.
“Having the pleasure of meeting amazing breeders and enthusiasts and their talented dogs is the best part about my job,” Melissa says. “I also enjoy traveling to different parts of the country to visit kennels or to watch dogs compete in show and sporting events.”
At Purina’s headquarters in St. Louis, it is not rare for Melissa’s Chihuahua “Max” to be seen curled up on her lap while she writes stories or edits photos at her desk. “The ability to bring my dog to the office is one of the greatest Purina perks,” Melissa says.
