After working in a couple local clinics in the area she started House Calls for Pets Veterinary Services, LLC in November of 2005. She then opened Coburg Veterinary Clinic in March of 2007. Dr. Michele originally from Rochester, New York moved to Oregon in 1980 after living in the Adirondack mountains for five years, she now resides in the Coburg hills. She has two grown children, one grandson and a granddaughter. She has three dogs, two Leonbergers Lady Bear and Zack, Buster a pet store rescue who claims to be a Lhasa Apso (he really looks like a mini sheepdog) and 3 cats. At one time she was an avid gardener and hopes to someday have the time for it again. Meanwhile she limits her green thumb to her house plants. In her spare time she enjoys spending time on her property with her animals and with her family, camping, fishing and hiking.
