Michelle was born and raised locally. She graduated from ODU and spent time teaching before changing careers and finding a home at The COVE in 2015. Michelle originally visited The COVE as a client, after her dog had been hit by a car. Michelle was super impressed by the collaborative care from the surgery and ER service, and that was when she knew she wanted to join the team. Ultimately, Michelle fell in love with the fast pace of ER medicine, which is why she is an anchor for the evening team at the front desk. Her spare time is spent visiting with her family and friends, traveling to the Outer Banks, hanging out poolside, and loving on her Pit mix, Rel. She also enjoys digging in the dirt and loves spring time, when she can freshen up the yard and flower beds.
