My residence and office have been in Cherry Creek East since 2015. I am a psychotherapist in private practice for young-ish adults and have been in the mental health field since 1999. After moving from Portland Oregon, I chose the neighborhood for my home and business due to its well-maintained homes, yards and offices, walkability to area restaurants and shops, and convenience to downtown and nearby parks. I have been enjoying my recent membership in one of CCE Social’s groups and look forward to future involvement in others. Outside of the Association, I lead a book club for 40/50-somethings from close-by neighborhoods and have volunteered to help out various arts organizations and refugee resettlement programs. My past Board Member appointments include serving as a Director for my HOA in Cherry Creek East and for a Professional Association for arts therapists in Oregon.  I value ethical, consensus based decision-making and listening to community members’ voices; I hope to be able to contribute my skills to the neighborhood association’s efforts at community-building, upkeep and betterment.

I have been serving on the CCEA Board for 4 years, working to build better communications and grow connections with our great community.   My career has been focused working in the technology industry working in various leadership roles tied to managing sales and global partnerships.   I moved to this area because I fell in love with our tree lined streets and nearby access to great restaurants and entertainment. I enjoy painting, going to concerts and walking in our nearby parks and bike paths.  My goal is to continue to grow our CCE community, building on the great work former and current board and committee leads have achieved over the years.

Michelle is a current CCEA Board member, joining in 2023.  
 
A Chicago native my journey has led me to New York City, Los Angeles and now Denver. I’ve been actively committed to service throughout my years in Chicago and Los Angeles where I served on the boards of local organizations focused on youth literacy, education, mentorship, and aging care. Additionally, I was involved in initiatives dedicated to the arts and community development.
 
Upon moving to Denver in 2021, I continued my dedication to local community involvement, particularly in real estate-related mentorship programs and volunteer services focused on social welfare. Currently, I am involved with a program that facilitates companionship and community support for the elderly.
 
My belief in volunteering as a vital way to connect, establish roots, and give back to the community remains a central part of my life. This dedication to service is what drew me to get involved with the Cherry Creek East Association.
Outside of work and volunteering, I enjoy exploring Denver from frequenting farmers and antique markets to enjoying outdoor activities like pickleball, skiing, and discovering the natural wonders of Colorado.
 
I look forward to deepening my involvement in the community and forging new connections and friendships in this dynamic and welcoming organization.
