Taken from Nat Geo Wild ''Dr. Oakley, is vet to pretty much everything that moves in the Yukon, making house calls across thousands of square miles, helping animals wild and domestic. Accompanied by her teenage daughters and armed with humor as sharp as a scalpel, Dr. Oakley deftly juggles being a full-time vet, wife, and mother, while taking us across some of the most rugged and remote landscapes in the world.

"Michelle Oakley fell in love with animals from a very young age as she spent most of her summers at her uncle’s dairy ranch. In her childhood, Dr. Oakley looked up to Jane Goodall, the English primatologist and anthropologist. She was only around 11 years of age when she met Goodall at an event in a local zoo and was inspired to pursue her dream of working with animals'' according to The Cinemaholic

Dr. Oakley attended the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island, Canada and interned at the Calgary Zoo.
