Michelle joined the Highland Health and Rehab team in August 2016. She has worked with Empres Healthcare since May 2010, previously working as Speech-Language Pathologist at our sister facility, North Cascades. Michelle earned her Masters degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Western Washington University in 2009. She also holds her Bachelor of Secondary Education degree from the University of Alberta. As rehab manager, Michelle strives to maximize the quality and outcomes of all rehab services provided at Highland Health and Rehab. She has worked hard to build a team of well-trained, compassionate therapists to meet the needs and appropriately challenge each patient receiving therapy at Highland. Specific areas of expertise and interest include the assessment and treatment of swallowing disorders, cognitive disorders and language impairments. Michelle enjoys coming to work every day because the home-like environment at Highland allows each employee and resident to feel like part of an extended family, and as a result, the quality and warmth of care provided is of obvious benefit to each resident. Michelle is also a busy mother of two young daughters and enjoys exploring the outdoors and staying active.
