Dr. Amsberry was born the 7th of 8 boys, a native Oregonian raised in the midst of the farms of the Willamette Valley of western Oregon. His roots are found here in Sisters Country, as his great grandparents settled just east of town on the Lazy Z Ranch in the early 1900’s. He and his wife, Jenny, have two grown children but the individual actually in charge of their household is Maple, their beloved Goldendoodle. Jenny states that Mike’s hobbies include anything with an -ing on the end….Mountain Biking, Hiking, Camping, Exploring, Skiing, Fly Fishing, and so on… Jenny and Mike love and are very involved in their faith family, St. Edwards Catholic Church here in Sisters.
He attended Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio earning a BA in Biology/Chemistry in 1986 and Oregon State College of Veterinary Medicine for his DVM in 1990.
