Michala grew up in Levelland and moved to Lubbock when she was 12. She started off as a volunteer at Above and Beyond in 2012 and loved it so much she started working here in 2014. Her favorite part of the job is getting to meet the wide variety of fur babies in the Lubbock area. She takes pride in working with animals and gaining their trust. The most rewarding part of her job is seeing an animal that is nervous and scared and being able to work closely with them to gain their trust and see their true personality come out. Micahala did just that when she adopted Lulu, a deaf dog that was abandoned at our hospital.
