Michelle Machin-Jefferies LLB (Hons) (Acting MD)
I joined NI in 2013 and I am animal mad in every sense of the word having grown up with dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, budgies and pigeons! I live on a farm and breed National Hunt racehorses, have just acquired a herd of Belted Galloway cows, I keep chickens but the absolute loves of my life are my 4 dogs, Lily, Twinkle, Morgan and Charlie. I and team NI love our products and truly believe they provide the very best nutritional support for dogs and cats.

I work very closely with the new product development team to help ensure the nutritional content and balance of the food. I also help Natural Instinct to provide their customers with the gold standard in advice on feeding the raw diet to pets. After graduating from Cambridge University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1984, in 1996 I became a Veterinary Member of the Faculty of Homeopathy in England, after training with the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital and the Homeopathic Professionals Teaching Group (HPTG), Oxford. I adore all animals and am the proud mummy to Tali my latest German Shepherd.
