Michelle graduated from NAIT in 2017 where she excelled and gained a lot of knowledge and practical experience. Before going to NAIT she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture from the University of Alberta. Animal welfare has always been a great passion of hers. Her grandparents owned a farm so she got to grow up with many fury creatures, both small and large. Michelle currently lives in Edmonton with her husband Ryan and her daughter Kailyn. Her home is filled with many rescue animals which include 2 dogs named Leia and Mara, 3 cats named Mex, Tessa and Danny, a rabbit named Sage and a turtle named Bowser. Michelle fosters for a couple of rescue organizations so it is not uncommon for her home to include many more fury friends. Michelle has wanted to work at Park Veterinary Center since being a student at NAIT because she really wanted to work with a variety of different species and become a “jack of all trades” so to speak. She believes that PVC is a very exciting place to work and gain experience. She is very grateful to have a career in veterinary medicine and the fact that she gets to go to work every day doing what she truly loves. Michelle enjoys her active lifestyle. Her spare time is spent with her wonderful family and animals. She enjoys jogging with her dogs, going to the dog park, gardening, weight lifting, camping and skiing.
