An Oregon Medicaid Agency Supporting Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities


Lead Direct Support Professional



Hello, my name is Michelle. I am a happily married mom of three amazing kids, ranging from 6ish to Pre-teen.  I have a few fur babies and feathered friends I take care of, and while I do not own horses, I do help care for them for others.

On sunny days, I prefer to be outdoors where I can hike, fish or just have a picnic with the kids. On days when the weather is better indoors, I enjoy reading, writing, art and playing games. When I’m not doing that, I am in the kitchen teaching my children how to bake or trying out healthy new recipes. I enjoy working with people and love learning new things and then passing on that new knowledge through teaching opportunities with others.

I often find reasons to travel and visit interesting places or restaurants. I’ve worked with and like computers and technology and can on occasion be found gaming. I prefer open-ended quests rather than fighting. I currently work in retail where I help customers find the things they are shopping for and aid them in checking out. I am eager to help others learn and grow in independence as a Direct Support Professional and look forward to meeting you.
