Melissa L.

Co-Founder & CEO
San Jose, CA, USA


After 20 years of experience in the corporate immigration field, I now proudly serve as President of Silicon Valley Pet Project, an all-volunteer 501c3 nonprofit organization whose primary mission is to save homeless and at-risk pets by finding innovative, repeatable and scalable ways to reduce the number of animals euthanized at our municipal animal shelter, San Jose Animal Care and Services.

Over the past 5+ years, I have focused my career on volunteering and founding nonprofit organizations related to animal welfare and cancer support programs, two issues very close to my heart.
