My deepest condolences for your loss. Michelle was one of a kind. She was a dedicated and passionate therapist. The thing I will remember the most was her excitement and love for children - most importantly her own children. Her love and pride for all three shined brightly. Michelle will be greatly missed.

Michelle was a wonderful human being that brought joy to others on top of delivering life changing therapy to her students. She will be missed and always remembered as an exceptional person. We were blessed to have her.

Michelle was my son Jaxson’s therapist for 6 years. She was an advocate for him oftentimes when others would question his ability due to his CP diagnosis & mobility challenges. She loved nothing more than working with him to gain not only his physical strength but also his mental strength. I without a doubt attribute many of the things he’s been able to accomplish in a school setting to her. Beyond the support given to my son, she was a tremendous support to me. This is a terrible loss to our family & the many that her work has touched over the years in JCPS. Her legacy lives on in my son & in my heart forever.
