Michele left her hometown of Houston for the charms of East Austin around 2007. She and her three 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 Michele haunting local thrift and 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 Saturday at West Lynn Vet Clinic.
