Michele earned her associate degree in veterinary technology in May of 2018 and graduated summa cum laude. She achieved licensure in 2019 becoming the only licensed veterinary technician/nurse in private practice in Kanab. She also has over a decade of hands-on experience as a veterinary technician, working with both large and companion animals. She considers being a veterinary technician to be a passion, not a job.
Michele began working with Dr. Backus in March of 2006; After a few years spent gaining technical skills at another clinic, and earning her degree, she is back with our practice. She has a passion for all aspects of veterinary medicine, and is always looking for opportunities to increase her knowledge and skillset to provide the best nursing care possible to our patients.
When she’s not in clinic, Michele shares her time with her horse, boxer, two pugs, two cats, and small flock of chickens. Every now and then, they let her spend a little time with her husband on off road adventures and enjoying nature. Her favorite hobbies include crochet, creating metal art, essential oils, and grandkids.
