Michele describes her title as basically meaning “all hands-on deck!” She is primarily responsible for representing The Lodge to prospects and guiding them through what can many times be an overwhelming proves. Prior to joining the team at The Lodge, Michele was community relations director at Vantage Point’s community in Hockessin, DE. She says that working from Vantage Point is very rewarding because “it encompasses a great sense of passion and determination towards the vision to offer the best lifestyle possible for seniors. Vantage Point has changed the look and feel of senior living. It is quite empowering to be a part of a family that genuinely wants the very best for seniors.” Personal experiences have helped shape her path to her current role, with both parents choosing an independent lifestyle (and being able to see the many benefits first-hand) as well as her mother’s early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. As a result, Michele is an advocate for seniors and encourages them to empower themselves, embrace independence while they can, and choose a lifestyle that can help them maintain that independence for as long as possible
When not working with the team at The Lodge, it’s hard to keep up with Michele! She enjoys an active lifestyle that includes walking, lifting weights, and exercising. Not one to let the grass grow under feet, she loves to travel – especially to California where one of her two sons and sister live. When she does take time to sit still, she fills the time reading health and wellness books.
