Licensed Veterinary Technician
Gwyn joined the Animal Eye Specialist team in January 2016. She has worked in the veterinary field as a receptionist since 2009. Gwyn started out in general practice, then worked in internal medicine and oncology for a short period. Gwyn has always had a love for animals, art and reading. In 2014, Gwyn started a small pet artwork business combining two of her passions. “I start and end every piece with the eyes. The eyes tell you so much about the personality of the animal.” Working in animal ophthalmology seemed like a natural transition. “Eyes are so much more complex than you would think. I am really enjoying learning more about the health and anatomy of the focus of my artwork.” Gwyn has three hounds named Lola Longbottom (Basset Hound mix), G-Ya (Rhodesian Ridgeback), and Axle (Rhodesian Ridgeback). She is also owned by a very bossy cat named Popi Cat Extraordinaire.
Michelle is a native of Corsicana, Texas. She attended Navarro College and Texas A&M University at Galveston, then moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. She has worked in the veterinary field for over 14 years, including emergency and critical care specialty practice, general practice, and 8 years in ophthalmology. After 15 years in Las Vegas, she returned home to Texas with her husband to be closer to family.
Michelle loves working in ophthalmology and was excited about finding Animal Eye Specialists. She looks forward to exploring this field more. In her spare time Michelle loves to shop, especially at farmer’s markets, and spending time with (aka spoiling) her nephews whom she adores, as well as her friends and family. Michelle and her husband reside in Dallas with their dapple dachshund, Einstein and a cat named Dweezel.
