Michelle Drake is a Medical Technician for Diamond Ranch Academy. Without our medical staff, Diamond Ranch Academy could not run properly. Michelle graduated from Mohave Community College and while going to college worked as a Certified Nurses Assistant (CNA), and Medical Assistant. She has had work experience in pediatrics, urgent care, OB/GYN orthopedics, podiatry (which we need for the boys on the football team), and as CNA for the Beehive Homes Alzheimer’s House. She has also had her own business as a daycare/preschool provider.
Michelle is originally from Salt Lake City and has lived in LaVerkin, Utah for 9 years. She really enjoys working in the medical field, especially with kids. Michelle has tried all aspects of the medical field from front and back office work, to billing and medical records. She loves to learn and try new things. She has a 97 year old friend that she used to take meals to because she wants to help him in any way. Her philosophy in life is “Let go, let God”and“This Too Shall Pass.”
Michelle enjoys getting to know the students and learning from them. She enjoys the staff at Diamond Ranch Academy and thinks everyone is very friendly. Michelle says she is learning a lot from her work at the Ranch and feels it’s great to go home after a long day and feel like she’s been a help to others.
