The faculty at the Northwest School of Animal Massage includes our experienced instructors and guest speakers, as well as administrative and student services staff.

Lola Michelin, founder and director of the school, is responsible for curriculum development and teaches many of our courses, including the advanced levels of training. Each student is assigned a Distance Learning instructor from our pool of professionals and graduates to assist them in their online studies.

The administrative staff offers assistance with program application and financing and tracks student progress.  Sandy Dochnahl serves our student body as their student services representative and Dan McDeviit oversees financial matters, while David Coat-Robles is on hand to field information technologies.   

Regardless of your path of study, you will find the NWSAM staff friendly, professional, and committed to your success.
