Originally from Aplington, Iowa, Melissa credits her mom as being one of the biggest influences in her life. “She was kind and generous to all. She taught me to have faith and persevere in spite of difficult circumstances. She also loved to laugh!”
In her free time, Melissa enjoys family activities, church activities and traveling.
Ms. Groeneveld received her BSN from Allen College in Waterloo in 1996. She received her MSN from Allen College in Waterloo in 2011. Melissa worked at Allen Hospital as a Registered Nurse from 1996 to 2011 and as a Cardiology Nurse Practitioner for Cedar Valley Medical Specialists from 2010 to 2013.
“I have always had a fascination with the way the human body works,” said Melissa. “I want to serve people and help them to enjoy the best quality of life possible. I was very intrigued by the opportunity to work in pain medicine as that has always been an interest of mine.”
You will find Melissa Groeneveld in the Covenant Clinic Pain Management office, Covenant Professional Office Building, 2710 St. Francis Drive – Suite 419, in Waterloo. Please help us welcome her to the Cedar Valley.
