Our Staff

 

Michele

Michele left her hometown of Houston for the charms of East Austin around 2007. She and her 3 dogs, Donald, Lottie, and Riff Randal Rock-n-roller, love all the parks, trails and swimming holes Austin has to offer. They share their home with four chunky kitties. A confirmed collector of all things kitschy, it is not uncommon to find her haunting local thrifts, vintage stores and record shops. She is proud to have 20 years of experience caring for animals of all kinds through rescue, foster, and rehabilitation programs, including one she co-founded in Houston that is still going strong after 10 years. She continues her mission here in Austin and is so thankful to be working with an amazing team of caring individuals every day at West Lynn Vet Clinic.

 

Bali

My name is Bali. I am originally from El Paso, TX and have lived in Austin for about three years. I have a five year old son named Fox. I also have a dog named Bruce who is a ten year old boxer mix. He loves laying around and playing with my two year old grey tabby cat named Doc Holiday. I enjoy working with animals and love to see happy pets. In my free time I enjoy taking my son and dog out to the parks around Austin or just grabbing a bite to eat at the local food trailers.
