Michelle joined WOU in 2019 as Director of Career Services in the Laconia market. In her role, she manages a team to deliver quality services to individuals who have barriers to unemployment, educates and trains staff to deliver these services with best practice in mind for quality and compliance, and creates relationships with community partners as well as businesses to maintain growth.
Prior to joining WOU, Michelle was Transition Coordinator for a New Hampshire high school. In that position, she developed school-to-work programs for students to meet personal and career-related goals and maintained partnerships with outside agencies and businesses to support programs within the community for students.
Michelle graduated from Springfield College with a bachelor’s in human services and has received numerous certifications in employment support and teaching. In her free time, Michelle takes advantage of the best that Laconia has to offer—boating in one of the many lakes in the region or riding her motorcycle along northern New Hampshire’s scenic roadways.
