Michelle joins the team with over 15 years of large and small animal veterinary assistant experience. Always having a passion for animals big and small, she grew up helping out on the family’s dairy farm and had a hand in rehabilitating wildlife with her aunt.
Her family always had an array of animals but her strongest passion has been horses and has had the pleasure of owning and showing them since she was 13yrs old. She really enjoys retraining off-track Thoroughbreds. Michelle owns 3 horses that she and her daughter enjoy. Michelle, her fiancé and kids also have 3 Cockatiels, 3 cats, 2 dogs – Hitachi the Akita (aka Michelle’s sidekick) , Tig the German Shorthair Pointer, Flemish giant rabbits, assorted chickens and they raise Hereford pigs.
Michelle and her family live in Hopkinton on a large piece of land they enjoy farming and hunting. She likes to spend time outdoors horseback riding, gardening, hiking, camping, going to the beach and ice fishing in the Winter. She’s also an avid reader and loves to watch horse racing.
