She has been with the company a long time and is an invaluable member of our team. She possesses a wealth of information on eye diseases and is therefore a great resource to our clients and this practice. She seems to have a photographic memory of our clients and patients. Her special interests in the field of veterinary ophthalmology are surgery and the complicated eye cases.
Michele has many pets and they all have interesting stories. Zyah is a black Labrador Retriever who was originally in training to become a seeing eye dog but had to drop out of the program. She knows lots of tricks including how to play dead and even jump rope! Michele has a special place in her heart for blue-eyed Siamese mixes. Fitting this description are her cats Ducatti and Floyd. She has two other cats, Rutherford and McAlyster. The newest additions to Michele's family are P'Nut, who is blind due to advanced retinal degeneration, and Squeegee. Squeegee is a geriatric Poodle who is a "final refuge dog" from Old Dog Haven
Michele's favorite way to spend her time away from work is with her pets. She loves playing with the dogs and spending time outside. Her pets are her family.
Michele's favorite color is blue and her favorite food is pizza!
