Michelle Bethel

Finance & HR Administration Manager

Michelle grew up on a dairy farm in New Zealand. In her first year after she completed school, she worked in a local Veterinary clinic whilst beginning her studies in Veterinary Nursing.

Unfortunately, Michelle was unable to complete her studies as she followed her now husband, across the ditch, starting her new journey in the area of accounts and office administration.

Michelle’s student support role at AVT includes but is not limited to new student enrolments, student payments and most things finance related. She is enjoying now working behind the scenes helping the veterinary nurses of tomorrow.

When she is not busy answering student questions, she is a Mum of two gorgeous kids and is also currently studying herself, working towards a Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping.
