Michele started working at Kendal in August 1993 after obtaining an M.A. in Art Therapy from Ursuline College. She became board-certified in art therapy in 1995, and then in 2007 became a board-certified dementia practitioner. Michele oversees the Creative Arts Therapy program for the Stephens Care Center and is a strong supporter of intergenerational activities. She works closely with the Bonner Center for Service and Learning at Oberlin College and Kendal Early Learning to engage both the college students and our young children with the Stephens Care Center. This year we are being honored by the Bonner Center as “Community Partner of the Year,” due in no small part to her hard work and dedication.
