Michelle is born and bred in the sunny Hawkes Bay. After studying Veterinary Nursing at Massey University in Palmerston North, she was drawn back to the Hawkes Bay where she resided for the next eight years. Here she honed her nursing skills, eventually becoming sole charge nurse for a clinic in Havelock North. She then went on her OE, working at various clinics in the UK, up-skilling over the next 2 years.

After finding her way back to New Zealand, and after re-uniting with her dog Bean, she made the move down to Wellington taking up the position of Head Veterinary Nurse here at CareVets Porirua. She is looking forward to sharing her knowledge and experience with the other staff, and continuing to grow and adapt as a Veterinary Nurse.
