Michele is a native of Kenner, Louisiana. She is married to Tony and lives in St. Tammany Parish with five dogs and four horses. When growing up, she had a great love for all animals. When she was small, her first animal was a German Shepard named Kelly. She got her first horse for Christmas when she was 10 years old. After school her days were spent taking care of her horse, Smokey. She realized it was a big responsibility taking care of a horse, but she loved it anyway! She also used to show Great Danes at dog shows. She was taught how to show them and also how to groom them and take care of them. After having other job positions and knowing how much she enjoyed watching animals being groomed, she decided to become a groomer. She completed her grooming course in 1994 and has been grooming ever since.
