Meet the Team


MiCHELLE NOBLE, Executive Director & co-founder

Michelle earned her B.S. from The Ohio State University. She started her career as a Certified Child Life Specialist at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in the Cancer Center.  After working at The Children’s Hospital for 3 years Michelle took a year to do mission’s work. It was on that trip that Michelle felt a deep calling to build a program where families who had experienced the death of a loved could find a community of support. Michelle volunteered and trained with 3 different grief programs which include: Cornerstone of Hope, located in Independence, Ohio and Camp Erin located Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In July of 2011, Michelle attended The Dougy Center's Summer Institute new program development training in Portland, Oregon. The Dougy Center is the nation's first and leading grief support center. Michelle has been supporting families since through peer to peer groups as well as individual family support. Michelle believes in partnering with other area non-profits and looks forward to partnering with area schools, churches and communities to provide quality grief support to families who need it.

Michelle enjoys dinner parties with family and friends, traveling, photography, a good porch, coffee and seeing people dream big and take risks.
