Michelle has been in the dental field since 1992 and has been a member of Dr. Walker's team since Janurary 2010. A native of San Jose, she graduated from Gunderson High School in 1988 and attended Evergreen Valley College for two years. After the medical assisting class she enrolled in at CCOC Vocational had to be reduced in size due to over enrollment, she was offered a spot in their Dental Reception & Office Management course. From that first class, she knew working in the dental field would be her career. Michelle is a proud mom of her son Ryan, who is currently attending the University of Oregon (GO DUCKS) and her step-daughter Kristina. She lives in San Jose with her husband Robert and their 3 dogs. In her free time, she loves reading, hiking with her dogs and boating out on the Delta with her husband and friends.
