Michelle graduated from Latrobe University completing her first degree in Bachelor of Health Science, majoring in Rehabilitation Counselling and her second degree in Masters of Occupational Therapy Practice.
Michelle worked as a support worker for a young boy with autism were she first experienced the impact of building a child’s self confidence and how that can influence their life. Since then, Michelle has had a passion for building self confidence, a sense of value and enjoyment in children of all ages and has done this through her work as an Occupational Therapist as well as through volunteering in running holiday programs with vulnerable children overseas and through a youth worker role running youth groups.
Michelle has experience working in private practice (clinic, community, schools) and has been with Building Blocks for several years. Michelle has a passion for this community as she grew up in the area and wants to see children and families feel supported.
In her spare time, Michelle loves to kayak, chase waterfalls and will find any excuse to drink a well made coffee.
