Featured Projects

Look below for some of the special projects that Michelle has been featured in. 

Passages Film - Ryerson University 

Passages is a film by Ryerson Student Affairs that hopes to act as a catalyst for thinking about school. Its purpose is no more heroic than that. We want to nudge people here and there in their thinking about what it means to engage in post-secondary education. This film is intended for students – incoming first-year students, students in transition, students poised to graduate, students in between, students in residence, students thinking about career options, students who struggle, students who thrive, students with disabilities, students full of confidence, students full of doubt. And it’s for the folks who support and guide students through all of it – educators, parents, caregivers, administrators, counsellors, friends.

Collar of Duty - Animal Planet

Collar of Duty is a new 12 part documentary series that showcases the incredible stories of service and therapy animals that are transforming people’s lives. The entire series highlights individuals living with a service/therapy animal to learn about their relationship and witness how each person’s life has dramatically improved thanks to the special animal in their life. We also visit the training facilities that are connecting people with the animals, pulling back the curtain to learn just what it takes for these special helpers to be deemed ready for service!

Reading Partners - CNIB
