A native Virginian, Dr. Mellinger has lived and served as a family physician in Lancaster County for over twenty years.  She considers it a privilege to partner with folks of all ages and backgrounds to tackle health concerns together, and is excited to be a part of the CovenantMD family.  Dr. Mellinger completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University, an MD degree from the University of Virginia, and a family medicine residency at Lancaster General Hospital.  She has served on the medical ethics committees at both LGH and the former Hospice of Lancaster County.  She has a lifelong interest in miniature woodworking and loves all things outdoors.  Dr. Mellinger's greatest joys are being the wife to husband Don and the mother of her three children.  They thoroughly enjoy maintaining their personal petting zoo:  four rabbits, a horse, two goats, and a miniature poodle!
