Michelle started her career in Senior Living at age 16. She knew then, that the people she served had lessons to teach her. That experience in the Dining Room led her to enroll in nursing school while she worked as a caregiver in Skilled Nursing. After receiving her nursing license, she worked as a nurse for 21 years with the senior population. While working at Merrill Gardens, she was encouraged by a colleague to move into a leadership role. She loved this opportunity to blend her nursing and leadership skills to truly make a difference in the lives of residents, their families and the staff.
