Michelle M.

Michelle started working in the veterinary industry in 2009. While she loved all the time spent cuddling your pets, she decided to take a 3-year hiatus to backpack around the world. During her travels, she made friends with all the local animals, feeding strays and giving them a place to stay whenever she could. Her most cherished companion was sweet Coco, a mange-riddled mama who got bathed, fed, and smothered with love at every opportunity. Once back home, Michelle got right back into the industry that brings her the most joy, working alongside amazing coworkers and sneaking into exam rooms to love on all your pets! She kept the tradition alive by becoming a foster failure mom to a stray cat named Ginger and a surrendered cat named Teddy.

Katrina is hoping to purse further schooling in the veterinary medicine industry, specifically to become an RVT. If it was up to Katrina no animals would go without a home.
