Melinda Maranto I completed my undergraduate degree in nursing at University of Tennessee in Martin in 2001. After pursuing a career at Jackson General, working in a Pulmonary step-down for 3 years, I decided to move my work closer to home.  While working as a charge nurse at Henry County Medical Center I met Dr. Calfee who offered be an opportunity to pursue a master’s degree.  While working in his office and learning Orthopedics, I was able to pursue and complete my master’s degree in 2010 at the University of Tennessee at Memphis. I opened a clinic in Camden Tennessee in 2011 and was open for 6 years before deciding to try something different. I had worked a few part-time jobs with the elderly, so I decided to attempt long-term care as a nurse practitioner. I thoroughly enjoyed this and worked in both roles as psychiatric and medical provider. My last position prior to here was working for Henry County Medical Center as a hospitalist.mIt was then that I realized how much I missed primary care and decided to come back to Camden. I have lived in Camden since the age of 8, so this is my home. Our community is very supporting and caring of each other, and I can think of no other place I would rather be. I have 2 children, a daughter who is 16 and a son who is 21. When I am not at work, you can usually find me at home visiting with my family or out camping at the campground. I love cooking and spending time with the family.
