Michele joined the Animalia team in 2022, but fell in love with veterinary medicine years ago while starting out as a veterinary assistant. She spent nine years in the pet food production industry and canine research and development until her heart led her back to the medical field. She knew Animalia was a special place from the moment she arrived, and we’re so excited to welcome her to the team. Outside of work, Michele can be found kayaking, hiking, and working on training and behavior with her many pups!
Michelle happily joined Animalia after being introduced as a client and industry friend in 2015. She quickly fell in love with Animalia’s mission, heart for rescue and passionate team of caregivers and medical professionals. Equipped with 12 years of small business management experience and an Associates Degree in Specialized Technology from Antonelli Institute of Photography & Graphic Design, Michelle manages our communications and marketing efforts. Outside of work, she can be found kayaking, fishing, and fawning over her scruffy fur babies, Gracie and Clarabelle.
