Hello there! My name is Michaela. I graduated in 2016 from the Health Care Assistant program and worked as a registered health care assistant for 6 years; however, I have always loved and cared for animals all my life, and I knew that was my calling.
I decided to take a chance and apply to the Twin Rivers Animal Hospital. I am so happy I made that decision. This hospital has completely changed the way I look at life. There is always an animal to be helped, and I am so honored to be able to dedicate my entire life to animals. I am mostly interested in preparing medications for patients and assisting clients with finding the right food for their special furry friend, but most of all I love being there emotionally for the animals while they are at the hospital. I believe the animals experience is vital to the outcome of treatment, and I take pride in my ability to calm animals and allow them to accept treatments being performed on them. The part I love the most about my clinic is how everyone works as a team and is understanding. They are always willing to help and answer questions, and you always know the animals are in good hands. I love that the clinic is big enough to support a large client load every day and there is room for many animals at one time to effectively care for and treat as many as possible. Most of all I can’t forget to mention Dr. Iceman and Dr. Maverick, our excellent clinic cats who are always supporting our clients when they are needing it the most. They are a very key part of the clinic and without them it simply wouldn’t be the same! A fun fact about me is that I have 3 cats of my own, David, Karen and Nugget. They are everything to me and now I can be with cats every minute of the day!!!
