Michelle has been traveling the country working with children and adults of all ages. She began her career writing grants for sensory equipment for hospitals throughout Michigan. With funding from grant agencies, she helped bring sensory spaces to rural counties and hospitals throughout Michigan to ensure children and adults of all ages had access to a sensory space in their home county.
Michelle has worked in numerous settings as an OT and has worked as an OT in 3 different continents including, North and South America and Africa. Settings she’s worked in include: brain injury and spinal cord rehabilitation, trauma hospitals, pediatric mental health, early intervention, and school settings. After graduating with her Master’s of Science in occupational therapy, she was interested in trying as many settings as possible to find her calling in OT. After several years of exploration, she’s found her niche in pediatric home care, where she’s able to work with children and families in their natural environment to provide the most holistic, client-centered care possible.
Michelle has worked with children of all ages and various diagnoses, including Rhett’s Syndrome, autism spectrum disorder, down syndrome, traumatic brain injury, ADHD, cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, developmental delays, fine motor delays, orthopedic injuries, and many more. She is usually found researching the latest and greatest in pediatric therapy treatments.
Outside of work, she is usually rock climbing or running and currently has a goal to run a race in every state with her dog, Millie. She is excited and ready to work with your family!
