Mike joined Kitsap Veterinary Hospital in February of 2018. He attended Michigan State University and after managing the MSU Wildlife Toxicology Laboratory for ten years, it was time for a change. In 2016, along with wife Justine, they moved to the Kitsap Peninsula from Michigan. She is a Veterinarian at another local hospital in Silverdale, WA. They live in Port Orchard with their son Jaxon. The four legged family members are Lucy and Lola, an American Bulldog and a French Bulldog. Outside the hospital, he enjoys spending time with his family. They enjoy everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer including hiking, biking, backpacking, camping, kayaking, fishing, and anything else outdoors.
