Michelle brings over 25 years of medical experience to Black Mountain Academy. She has worked in direct patient care for many of those years with a focus on pediatric and adolescents. Along with years of experience, Michelle is a Registered Medical Assistant with many certificates under that umbrella that include everything from phlebotomy to early childhood development. Michelle homeschooled her son from kindergarten to 12th-grade graduation. Therefore, she has both the knowledge and humor to sift through a medical need vs. a break from school.
Michelle loves helping others and enjoys watching our students grow in their knowledge of how to take care of and advocate for themselves from a medical perspective. It brings a smile to her face to help ensure that students, staff, and parents have what they need on a daily basis.
When not at Black Mountain Academy Michelle enjoys being with her husband, son, and furry family members. She volunteers with several local programs and enjoys teaching others about health and well being as well as overcoming obstacles life may put in your way. A mountain girl born and raised, it doesn’t take but one conversation with her to pick up on her love for the beach and anything that sparkles.
