About the Book

Have you ever driven home from work wearing nothing but a pair of rubber boots? For
Dr. Melinda, a large animal veterinarian in rural Virginia, this is living the dream. Using
her background as a farm girl, she’s willing to get down and dirty to help animals in
distress. Getting caught driving home naked after a tough day at work is just another day
at the office for Dr. Melinda.

Ride along in the vet truck as she fearlessly confronts any obstacle in her path while
building a thriving veterinary practice with an all-female foundation. Her stubbornness
and grit allow her to surpass the expectations of her adversaries, including her own father,
to become the owner of a successful veterinary business and mother of an inquisitive,
spirited young daughter. Driving Home Naked offers a firsthand glimpse into the
fascinating world of veterinary medicine through Dr. Melinda’s heartfelt and humorous
stories. This riveting memoir will captivate animal lovers and inspire people to follow
their dreams. Buckle up for a wild ride.

“In Driving Home Naked, we see how it was for Dr. McCall to start her food animal practice in rural Virginia and how she had to work extra hard to prove to male farmers that she was a capable veterinarian. A worthwhile read.”
