Michelle graduated from Jefferson Community College of Veterinary Technology in Hillsboro, MO in 2010 as a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) with an Associate Degree in Applied Science. She joined the Strothertowne Pet Hospital team in 2012 when she moved to the Kansas City area to be closer to family. She has one daughter who lives in Springfield and a Doberman Pincher named Ruger. Michelle has always had a passion for working with animals, and is grateful that her career choice allows her to spend her days helping them. When she isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her dog and hanging out with family, watching Royals or Chiefs games.
