Dr. Michelle Braunstein

Dr. Michelle Braunstein is originally from Springfield, VA.   She completed her undergraduate degree in business at Virginia Tech.  She initially started working in the veterinary field as a veterinary assistant back in 2009.   Dr. Braunstein graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (located in the Caribbean) in 2015 with highest honors.  She went through her clinical rotations at the Ohio State University.  After veterinary school, she completed a small animal rotating internship at the Regional Veterinary Referral Center in Virginia.  During her internship, she received extensive training in emergency medicine, and shadowed various specialty fields such as cardiology, oncology, internal medicine, surgery, neurology and dermatology.   After completion of her internship she made the decision to move her life to the west coast. She has since been a full time general practice veterinarian for cats and dogs.

Dr. Braunstein has a cat of her own named Romie (named after the popular 90's movie "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion)!  In her free time, Dr. Braunstein really enjoys music and actually loves to sing.  She has been involved in  many choral groups,an a cappella group and was previously a vocalist in a rock band.  She is currently in the process of learning to play guitar as well.  One day you may see her out and about at open mic nights!  She also loves spending time outdoors, more so now that she lives here.  She received her scuba diving certification in the Caribbean and plans to continue using it.  She also loves the beaches, mountains and the hiking trails.
