About Me

   Holly Melton Martin, a veterinary surgical technician, mother of two, wife, veteran USN Hospital Corpsman, and a long-time hobby artist.  My life has changed courses within the last few years and now my focus has shifted.

As a little backstory, I enlisted in the United States Navy immediately after high school. Seems like forever ago. 2002- First, finishing boot camp in Illinois, then Hospital Corps School immediately after. I joined wanting to travel and get a college education at the same time. Fortunately, I was able to specialize as a surgical technologist and live in Naples, Italy. I really enjoyed my time while being enlisted, but I knew it wasn't going to be a lifetime career choice for me. 
 
    Once my service was complete, I moved back to North Carolina and after a few in-between jobs I found Carolina Veterinary Specialists. It proved to be one of the best decisions I've ever made, other than working myself until my body couldn't do it anymore. I gained tons of experience with animals, surgery, anesthesia... Not only that, I have also slowly expanded my hobby into a profession. 
 
    In the last few years, I found the love of my life, got married, and had two beautiful babies... Summary: I’m in my late 30's, working part time, raising children, dog, and cats, while also painting, and trying to expand my art business... and I’m very okay with all of it. 
 
     I have never had any formal artistic training; the only classes I took were in high school. My goal for all of this is to extend my creative skills and advance my talents through veterinary hospitals and beloved pet owners.
