For as long as he can remember, Mike has loved providing care to his own animals and talking with other pet owners about their four-legged friends. For him, veterinary medicine is the perfect way to incorporate that into a career! Mike is thrilled to begin his veterinary journey here at Golden Valley Animal Hospital.
A Minneapolis native, Mike attended college in Wisconsin to study economics and Spanish, and even spent a semester abroad in Spain. A few years after graduation, Mike decided to take a leap of faith and jumpstart his veterinary career—he returned to school to become a veterinarian, and joined the Golden Valley Animal Hospital family shortly afterward to supplement his studies with hands-on experience. His favorite part of the job is getting to learn something new every day; no two shifts are ever quite the same!
Mike lives in his hometown of Chaska and when he has time between his busy work and school schedules, reading, and spending time with friends and family.
