Vet Tech: Michelle Moore
I am a Fruita Colorado Native. My love for animals started at a very young age as I brought home every stray kitten I would find. My love for animals has only grown over the years. I participated in 4-H as a child, and was a member of the “Levi and Calico" drill team that performed for rodeo entertainment. To this day, I still like spending time with my horses. I have four children that keep me busy and the love of a very good man. I have worked for Dr. Bob since 2003, and I absolutely love my job. By the end of the day, I feel very rewarded knowing I gave the very best care to all of my patients.

I have grown up here in Fruita, Colorado and have worked with animals my whole life. I have been in several rodeos, and also in 4H. My family is the highlight of my life and next to that would be my passion in caring for animals. I’ve been a vet tech for 7 years, 5 of those years with Dr. Bessert. Dr. Bessert has taught me everything I know. I have a deep passion for what I do, and will always do anything to further my education to provide better care for our patients.

I was born and raised in Palisade Colorado. Grew up on a 7 acre farm, and participated in rodeos throughout my childhood. I absolutely love working and caring for animals. Eventually, I want to further my education in animal care. But, for now I love working and learning from Dr. Bessert, Michelle and Kambri, and I am looking forward to meeting clients and making sure our patients get the best care they deserve.
