Michelle has nearly 20 years experience of working with foster parents and finds the work as interesting and stimulating today as when she started on her social work journey. Michelle enjoys working with foster parents individually and through group work as she understands both are important and effective ways to help them with the challenging task of fostering.
Michelle considers she has a positive, cheerful and optimistic approach to her work and personal life and finds working with foster parents and the children they care for hugely rewarding. Michelle says “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!”. She has the ability to see positives in the most negative of situations and is motivated to provide a high standard of service to the families she works with. No two days are ever the same and Michelle is constantly impressed with the dedication and skills shown by foster parents. Michelle is delighted to share her own skills and experience with an outstanding fostering service and is thrilled to be part of such a great team!
