She enjoys taking care of Anasazi clients and their pets and takes great pride in the positive reviews the practice has garnered online. Michele has been in the veterinary industry for 13 years, a career choice decided after her dog required a lot of medical attention. Helping him made Michele want to help other pets, too. Michele has a veterinary assistant certificate from Pima Medical Institute and is a certified veterinary technician.

Originally from New York, Michele, her husband and their two children now call Mesa home. When not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family – which now includes a grandbaby who she dotes on.

Dr. Sharon Langeneckert

Associate

Dr. Langeneckert didn’t always know she wanted to be a vet but it seemed to make sense by the time she was a teenager. She was the kid who tried to rescue stray cats in the neighborhood and save worms that were drowned out of the lawn. In high school, she became very interested in physiology and biology. Her high school offered a work for school credit program so she obtained a position at a local veterinary clinic. It was there that she saw her first surgery and became hooked.

Having grown up in Michigan, she attended Michigan State University for both undergraduate work and veterinary school, graduating in 1994. Right after graduation, she looked for a place that didn’t have as much snow and relocated to the Phoenix area. Since then she has really enjoyed helping cats and dogs and the interactions she gets to have with their owners.

There is a special place in her heart for her feline patients, but there is nothing like a soft nose and wagging tail of a dog as well.

She and her husband have 2 kids, 1 cat and 1 dog. The kids like helping with the pets when they need medical attention. Maybe we have the next generation of vets here. We’ll see.
