Previous work experience: Michelle was the Health and Nutrition Manager at a Head Start program serving children from birth to age 5. She also worked on an educational farm, where she taught all ages about local food systems and taking care of oneself and the environment. Michelle is excited to bring her past nutrition experiences to PHA!
Hobbies and interests: You can usually find Michelle in her favorite room of her home--the kitchen! She loves cooking and baking her way through her collection of cookbooks (her favorite things to make are homemade pasta, baked goods for special occasions, and anything on the grill).
Michelle also enjoys long walks through her community--she has seen so much of Boston by foot, and during the pandemic it was her favorite way to get moving and clear her mind. Her favorite spot in the city is Herter Park in Allston, along the Charles River.
Previous work experience: "I am thrilled to be part of a community that is invested in their students. I cannot wait to expand our meals program and continue to offer healthful meals to our students."
