Here are the highlights from Michelle’s nomination.
Advocating for Supported Individuals
Michelle volunteers for the Ronald McDonald House once a year. One of the individuals she supports had a goal of volunteering in the community. With Michelle’s support, this individual was able to sign up to be a volunteer at a Ronald McDonald House event where he was able to bake, set up tables and chairs, and assist with the guests attending the event. He was able to achieve his goal of volunteering with the support of Michelle.
Michelle continually takes initiative when facilitating and supporting individuals in various activities. She completes pre-planning with the supported individual so that he is prepared for the activity. Michelle is proactive so that if the plan falls through, there are other opportunities available. Michelle is a leader in the Personal Supports Department.
