Michele is married to Cy, and together they have 4 children (Ashley, Amber, Lance, and Audrey).  In addition to her family, Michele has 1 cat (Benjamin - previous clinic cat and Crash's Landing rescue), an Australian Shepherd mix named Lloyd, and a Shepherd mix named Willow.  In what little spare time she has, Michele enjoys cooking and baking, reading, playing softball, going to the movies, and spending time with her family and friends.

Knieta, Veterinary Technician


I always knew what I wanted to do from a very young age. Most people are shocked when I tell them I followed through with my dream that I've had since I was 5 years old. I graduated from Baker College of Muskegon's Veterinary Technician program in 2023. Sometimes this goal felt unattainable but here I am 2 and 1/2 years of schooling later! I was very lucky to do my internship here at Clyde Park Veterinary Clinic and I was even luckier that they wanted me to stick around. I feel very blessed to have a wonderful staff surrounding me and guiding me through one of the biggest transitions of my life so far.

When I'm not working at the job that's very near and dear to my heart, I enjoy coloring, reading, and spending time outdoors.
