Dr. Michelle applied to veterinary school after pursuing her studies in Biology and Geology. A native New Brunswicker, Dr. Michelle graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College in 2004. Why did she become a veterinarian you ask? Well, she knew some day she would have to work- and since she was to spend so much of her life at work, having a rewarding career was important to her. What better choice than veterinarian? Dr. Michelle loves that on any given day she is a detective, a surgeon and on the receiving end of puppy kisses and kitty “head butts” the next. Dr. Michelle shares her life with: 1 cat (Mojo, an FIV positive cat), 1 dog (Lincoln, a Boxer) and her husband Chris- a Bradford boy – and daughters Sophie and Alexandra. In her spare time she enjoys traveling, camping, gardening and cooking. Dr. Michelle is very excited to be fulfilling her dream of starting her own practice here in Bradford.

Julie is no stranger to business in Bradford as she has been managing businesses in the community for over 10 years. Julie went to College and University for Business and trade schools for Beauty and Etiquette. She then started a career in the performing arts and beauty industry where she discovered her love for people and business. She began to find that the key to success was using her own unique strategies that focus on hand-crafted business systems with importance on employee wellness, which seemed to be the missing piece for business owners in a variety of industries. Julie transitioned into the pet industry in 2011 when she managed a successful pet supply store and grooming salon. During this period, Julie came to know Dr. Michelle and Loren. They approached Julie about joining the team at Holland Street Veterinary Services. Julie lives in a zoo. She has 2 dogs, 3 cats, many children and her husband. When she is not managing the clinic, you will find her being Mama Jules to her children and all of their friends.

After time in the human care and transportation logistics field, Loren has decided that the Veterinary world is where she wants to be. Loren has 2 kids who are very active, her daughter is an avid dancer and her son plays rep baseball. If she isn’t at the clinic, the ball diamond or the dance studio you can usually find her in sunny Florida relaxing on the beach.
