Michel Quiroz

Treasurer

Michel started her journey with advocating for dragon care with her very first bearded dragon. Shortly after adding him to her family, he was diagnosed with CANV (a deadly disease known as Yellow Fungus). Spurred by helping her own dragon, her passion is to research more into this and other diseases and how to fight them. She lives in Las Vegas with her three dragons, one of which is still the first dragon who she helped fight CANV and is now doing well.
