A Venice resident since childhood, Michelle Miller obtained her undergraduate degree in Social Work and Behavioral Science before turning her professional attention to the world of non-profits and the international for-profit sector. Now, she’s ready to blend her college education with her career as the newest Senior Care Advisor on the Assisted Living Locators Manasota team.
For more than 15 years, Michelle has led business development, customer loyalty and programming teams for such highly acclaimed organizations as Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast, PGT Industries and World Wide Express. During her successful career, she consistently has built markets, improved the bottom line, directed customer service teams, mentored and taught junior staff, developed philanthropic programming for case managers and volunteers and drafted winning grant proposals.
Prior to her move into the corporate arena, Michelle worked as a Group and Individual Therapist in a well-known Florida recovery center. During her time there, she conducted daily group therapy sessions to enhance the quality of life of emotionally-impaired adults and counseled adults in a one-on-one setting, as well as overseeing the administration of all documents legally mandated by the state of Florida. Her experience helping place patients in appropriate living situations, find accommodating services and provide mental health counseling seamlessly translates into an impeccable ability to seek out the very best solutions for individualized senior care and senior services.
While in college, Michelle worked part-time in a local retirement center and volunteered at a senior living community. Today, she continues to volunteer at numerous community activities with her children and says dedicating her time to the community and to seniors provides a welcome outlet to deliver world class service to those in need and put her excellent interpersonal skills to good use.
A consummate team player with solid leadership skills, Michelle is looking forward to bringing her positive outlook, motivational management style and customer service acumen to her new role of Senior Care Advisor at Assisted Living Locators Manasota.
