Michelle was raised here locally in the Bonsall/Fallbrook area growing up on a horse ranch with her parents. She has been lucky and from a very young age she has been raised around horses and livestock her entire life since her parents owned and operated a horse ranch that consisted of breeding and showing along with her father being a farrier.

When Michelle is not busy with assisting the veterinarians in the practice she is spending her time with her three children and husband on the small ranch that they own. They currently have three horses that they enjoy showing in various events.
