Melissa Connolly, PA-C

Physician Assistant

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.”

Melissa joined our clinical team as a Physician Assistant in 2020. Coming to us with 14 years in women’s healthcare under her belt, 12 of which were spent at OB/GYN offices, Melissa brings experience, understanding, and compassion to every patient she has the pleasure of meeting. A lifelong learner, Melissa states, “I will never stop increasing and improving upon my professional knowledge and training.”

A member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, Melissa started her career in healthcare at Seton Hall University where she was accepted into the “3+3 program.” There, she earned her undergraduate Bachelor’s of Science degree, her Graduate Master’s of Science degree, and ultimately received her certification in Physician Assistant Studies.

Fluent in English and Spanish, Melissa’s motto towards life is to “practice gratitude. I am most appreciative to have learned this way of viewing life, and it has served me well.”
