Meet our Incredible Team!
Dr. Michelle Bradford received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Michigan State University in 2005. Prior to her veterinary education, Dr. Bradford always had a love for animals and an interest in surgery. Throughout her veterinary career, she has continued to seek new challenges. After graduation, she spent three years as a surgical intern at a referral hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan. There, she received advanced soft tissue and orthopedic surgery training. Upon moving to Howell, Michigan, Dr. Bradford worked in corporate veterinary medicine for almost three years. Part of this time involved working as an emergency and surgical intern with referral hospitals in Southfield and Auburn Hills. Since graduation, she has also had the wonderful opportunity instructing veterinary students, including her distinct teaching experience with the Primary Care Service at her alma mater. Along with Dr. Bradford's desire to help pets through surgery, she also enjoys the long term relationships developed with her patients and clients as a primary care veterinarian. Following seven years in primary care in South Lyon, Michigan, Dr. Bradford decided to act on her own vision for a veterinary hospital for the 21st Century! When Dr. Bradford is not pushing the boundaries of veterinary medicine, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Ryan, and her two sons, William and Hayden. Dr. Bradford's furry family includes her four wonderfully different cats, Cricket, Plankton, Pita, and Tabby. Her leisure interests include boating, bon fires, fun with friends and family, running, reading, and lifting weights.
Dr. McKenna joined Four Seasons Veterinary Services in February of 2020. Dr. McKenna obtained her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University in 2011. Following graduation, she worked as a primary care and emergency veterinarian in Arizona for several years prior to moving to Michigan. She has enjoyed providing preventive and emergency/critical care to her canine and feline patients. In 2013, Dr. McKenna became a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist through Colorado State University's Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians course. We are excited that she can offer her expertise in acupuncture, and share her knowledge and experience with our clients and patients. Dr. McKenna's professional interests include feline medicine, internal medicine, and animal welfare. She also enjoys running, hiking, being outdoors, and spending time with her family. She is married to a veterinarian and they have two sons, Finnegan and Riley, and one daughter, Aurora. Her fur family consists of four rescue animals; including, three cats (Clover, Oscar, and Kaelee) and one dog (Ghost).
Dr. Gabi joined our team November 2021 as our Associate Veterinarian. An MSU graduate, just like Dr. Bradford, she comes with the same big heart. During her schooling she served in outreach groups to provide vet care to underserved communities abroad. Her focus has always been to provide high quality medicine, and provide exceptional patient care so Four Seasons was just the right fit for her! She loves shopping, travelling, and is a major foodie (and fan of daschunds). At the moment she has three dogs, Kobe a whippet mix, Gretta the dachshund, and Minnie the chihuahua mix. We're so very thankful to her for joining our team and helping us provide another skilled set of hands to Brighton and the surrounding communities!

Megan P. is one of our experienced veterinary technicians. Her love for animals extends back to a very young age. Megan received her Veterinary Assistant diploma in 2010 from Penn Foster College, and she is currently attending their Veterinary Techinician program. We lovingly call Megan "the cat whisperer" because of the way our feline patients respond to her. We are thrilled that she is part of our team! Megan's furry family includes four greyhounds (Dave, Honey, Penny, and Blue) and one cat named Dottie. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and volunteering with a local greyhound rescue.
Alaina C. joined our team in September of 2020. While she started off as a customer service representative coming from a background in administration and childcare, she quickly grew within this role and beyond. While Alaina slowly transitioned from our front office to the treatment area for direct animal care, she then gained skills and confidence at a surprising rate we are so thankful for. She has been growing in her veterinary technician skills after quickly mastering veterinary assistant and continues to fill out this role with new knowledge daily, trained and homegrown by our team here at Four Seasons. She spends her free time with her 3 year old catahoula mix Mia, Nessie her 7 year old bearded dragon, and Nala her 5 year old cat. She loves anything and everything Disney from amusement parks, to movies, and is our resident baker providing delicious cookies and other treats to our team!
Amanda S. has been in the veterinary field for 10 years from Metro Detroit to Livingston County. While having served primarily in emergency medicine in the past, she wanted to return to general practice and the type of family atmosphere that Four Seasons offers its employees. Nowadays she can rest on a rich history of experience in surgery and patient care; she began her vet med journey at WCCC where she received her license as a Veterinary Technician and an Associates Degree in Applied Science. She enjoys camping, four-wheeling, and snowmobiling as well as spending quality time with her pets (2 cats Rusty & Savannah, and one dog, Daisy Mae!), family, and friends.
Stacy V., our beloved Lead Veterinary Technician, has been with Four Seasons since we opened in February 2019. She earned her License in Veterinary Technology from Michigan State University in 1995. Since that time, she has worked primarily in emergency veterinary medicine, and we are excited that she brings over 20 years experience to our hospital! When she is not working, she spends time with her husband, Tony, and her three children, Zach, Jessica, and Sean. Her furry family includes one dog, Zoey, one cat, Pepper, and a bunny named Browney. Stacy enjoys cooking, gardening, watching movies, and traveling.
Bethany P. came to Four Seasons looking for a place to grow, be valued and to have a career somewhere she could be proud of talking about. We are so glad we were her top choice and so glad to have her as our Lead Customer Service Representative. Beth has taken her position and made it her own, creating systems, camaraderie and the best possible front desk team we could ever hope for. She molds our new hires and shines as one of the best examples of the Four Seasons mission to be your family vet with honest, trustworthy and experienced care. Her hobbies include snuggling her two senior dachshunds Ridley and Oliver and her rescue rabbits Violet. Whenever there’s an animal in need, it always seems to find Beth, so we know her well for her disabled pet fosters as well as her taste for all things vegan. When not cuddling her adorable animals, or serving our amazing clientele with a smile, Beth loves being outside, going to the beach and listening to True Crime podcasts!
Emily C. joined our team as a veterinary assistant Fall of 2022. We were so grateful to have her as we have been growing at a fantastic rate and really needed the extra help. Emily was brand new to the world of veterinary medicine but you would never know it. In a matter of weeks she has stepped up and taken on so much of our hospital upkeep and patient support. She started her pet care career with Camp BowWow but learned after her time there, that there was so much more to learn about the animals she loves. Emily spends the largest portion of her personal time training and exercising her Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix or caring for she and her boyfriend’s two cats. She loves binge watching sci-fi and cult classic tv and movies and refers to herself as fluent in spending money.
Izzy H. is quite possibly the most chipper, happy, positive person we have ever had on our team and we couldn’t be more grateful for it! Since summer 2022 she has been helping us all start our mornings off right and is so excellent to our clients, treating them like everyone is part of the Four Seasons Family! After a little over three years at her prior veterinary practice Izzy found she was looking for more of the closeness and comfort of a small independently owned practice like ours. She got engaged to her now fiancé after her first couple months with us and we are so happy to get to see her grow in her role and in her personal life too! She spends her free time with her two beautiful pitties Gypsey and Pyper, as well as her horse Misty (occasionally barrel racing). We hope we have Izzy for many years to come!
Nathan B. joined the Four Seasons team as a Customer Service Representative in August of 2022 to pursue his dream of a career helping pets and their owners. Nathan previously worked in pet stores and a grooming salon as a bather; he is a current volunteer at a nonprofit organization training service dogs for disabled veterans. When Nathan is not at the front desk assisting our clients, he can be found working on cars, motorcycles and computers and listening to music. At home, he enjoys spending time with his dogs: Cipher, an 8 year old Siberian Husky; Amy, a 4 year old Belgian Malinois; and Hope, a 3.5 year old Black/Terrier mix.
Shanna S. joined the team in September 2022 as a veterinary assistant and we are so thankful that she did! Whether she is working in the lab, filling prescriptions or assisting the technicians and doctors, Shanna always brings a positive attitude to our practice. She came to Four Seasons seeking a pet-friendly environment and a new and exciting career working with pets and continues to grow in her position everyday. When Shanna is not at work she enjoys spending time with her family, cat, dog and macaw.
