Tammy Brodie D.V.M.-“Dr. Tammy”
Dr. Tammy knew she wanted to be a veterinarian most of her life. She grew up on an island with a dog and kept a horse on the mainland. She began her veterinary medical career as a kennel assistant followed by a veterinary assistant. This experience just fanned her desire to understand medicine more so she graduated from Michigan State University in 1988 as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.
After working at several veterinary hospitals gaining valuable experience, Dr Tammy decided to purchase Orchard View Veterinary Clinic in 1995 with the goal of providing the best possible care for pets and their families. When she is not at the clinic, Dr. Tammy enjoys spending time with her family and friends (2 legged and 4), and flying her airplane whenever she can.

Since 1998, Teresa has worked here for Orchard View Veterinary Clinic as the manager/technician. Her favorite part of her job at Orchard View Veterinary Clinic is of course the kittens and puppies!

Her and her husband, Louie, are well known in the community as they are very active in their own church, Seeds Family Church.

Teresa and her family are joined by their furry kids, dogs: Bea, Tater, and Professor and their cat Maddie the Bad Cattie.

Michelle Griffioen (M2)
Michelle graduated from Lowell High School in 2014 and attended Grand Valley State University for 3 years. Growing up she had always wanted to be a veterinarian and 'practiced' on her childhood chocolate lab Candy. Michelle rescued Pepper, a black lab, a few years ago. While training Pep, Michelle knew she wanted to help animals in some form, but not knowing how she could make a difference with the challenges she faces. Battling constant pain, she wants to make sure that animals don't feel that same pain. In the fall of 2016 Michelle joined our team as a receptionist, making it her goal to make a difference in the lives of the pets and owners as she can. She's living her dream. In her free time Michelle spends as much time as possible with her niece and family. She enjoys rock climbing, reading books and of course eating food. Just don't ask her to cook for you, it will come out burned to a crisp.
