Dr. Sue Williams, Dr. Ivy Hummel and the staff of Hometown Veterinary Hospital would like to extend a warm welcome to Dr. Michelle Balas to our hospital and the North East community! She will be joining us, part time, at the end of September!
Dr. Balas graduated from Allegheny College and received her Veterinariae Medicinae Doctoris (VMD) from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. She has been practicing for almost 8 years, with the last 5 being at Camboro Veterinary Hospital in Edinboro, PA.
She grew up on a dairy farm outside Titusville, PA. Dr. Michelle and her husband, Ben, have two girls Chelsey and Brooke.
They raise Holstein heifers, chickens and guinea hens!
They also have two Australian Shepherds, Raelyn and Riley.
In her free time, she enjoys tap dancing, kayaking, reading and listening to podcasts.
We are all so excited she will be joining us!
