Michele has been in the veterinary field since August of 1992. She quickly discovered her love and passion caring for pets when she took a position as a receptionist at a private practice in Pennsylvania. She trained and worked as a veterinary nurse until she moved to Florida in 2003, where she continued her career as a veterinary assistant. She became a practice manager in January of 2007 which allowed her to continue to develop in the field. She joined Banfield in May 2015 and loves being part of such a wonderful company serving pets and the community with a passion for both. In her spare time, Michele serves as youth minister at her church, running the St. Gregory High School youth group, and she also volunteers in several ministries serving the community.
