About Michelle

I am a senior care professional with over 15 years in the retirement industry. I am also a trained exercise instructor and love to help everyone improve their quality of life by daily movement and exercise. I have a passion for helping seniors maintain their independence through movement and cognitive activities. I would love to work with your loved one and help them maintain an active engaging lifestyle. The most important thing we can do each say is "show up!" Through creative planning and engaging each person at their level of interest we could venture on a dynamic journey where everyone is blessed along the way. I have been CPR/First Aid certified for over 30 years and am well trained in dementia care (especially Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease) My most memorable moments with residents have been engaging them in daily exercise both for the body and the soul!
