August Employee Spotlight - Melesa Lassiter BSN, RN

Job Title and # of Years employed:

Regional Overdose Prevention Specialist with 4 years of service in this position.

What do you like most about your job?

I love most the ability to help others with resources to obtain Narcan (naloxone) to prevent opioid overdose. Our prevention efforts would not have been as successful without community partners helping spread the awareness message and resources available locally in our communities.

Share a little bit about yourself and your family:

I am a faithful servant to my Lord and Savior. I love serving others with the gifts he has given me. My strong support at home is from my husband and two beautiful daughters. We also have some sweet animals that we share our home with.

Share some interesting facts some may not know about you.

I am ambidextrous, and I used to raise sugar gliders. Currently, we have a miniature Australian Shephard dog, Maine Coon Cat (think big cat, 22lbs), a rabbit, and fish.

What are your hobbies?

Crafting, Crafting, Crafting, can I say crafting! Lol. I also enjoy card making, gardening, and canning.
