Branch Manager, Park Ridge

Michelle Richter, born & raised in Evanston, IL and is a resident of, Mount Prospect, IL with her husband, Ron and daughters, Heather Paige and Haley Rey. She studied biological sciences and graduated from the University of Denver with a Bachelors degree in Biology and Chemistry. Her strong work ethic and managerial skills have been influenced from her family’s self -owned business as she participated in marketing for the company.

Before landing her job at the University of Chicago in Drug Development Research, Michelle worked as the Doggy Daycare Lead at Pooch Hotel. Although she loved her awarding job at U of C, Michelle wanted to work closer to home and found a position at American Marketing and Publishing where she excelled in inside sales and became a Search Engine Marketing expert. She brought her marketing skills here at Prairie Path to help grow Park Ridge and the surrounding areas.

Michelle’s passion and enthusiasm for dogs is what brought her to us as she was seeking the opportunity to work with our company. She loves to run, bike and even finds time to go fishing with her husband and daughters. If Michelle is not working in her garden, you can find her snuggling in bed, watching movies with her daughters and dogs, Royal, Maxwell and Madeline, who are always by her side. Michelle’s gregarious personality, love for animals and dedication to Prairie Path has earned her the Branch Manager title, Corporate Payroll Manager and Quality Control Director.

We get it! We want to meet them before they start working for us too. That is why each walker goes through an extensive interview process, background check and on-the-job training before taking on a dedicated route.


Before service begins you'll be able to meet a manager and your dedicated walker at your free Meet & Greet. Even more, our scheduling software provides profiles on each of our team members so you can get to know everyone on our walking team!
