Prior to working for Alive, Michelle spent two years working in a care home as an Activity Coordinator. She provided engagement and well-being to people with nursing care needs and people living with dementia. She has a passion to provide meaningful person-centred activity by recognising individuality and working in a way that enables people to make choices. Nothing makes her happier than to see people enjoy themselves doing the things that they love to do and to have a smiles on their faces.

Michelle has a keen interest in fundraising and has raised thousands of pounds over the years for various charities. You can quite often see her behind a tombola, teddy bear or cake stall. She has also spent time volunteering as a fundraiser at a retirement village, prior to the pandemic and was a COVID-19 support volunteer throughout the pandemic in her local community.

In her spare time, Michelle loves to bake and it gives her great pleasure to share her delights with family and friends. She also enjoys travelling, history and crafting.
