Michelle Rae, Perinatal Support Program Coordinator

Michelle is in her final year of study in the field of Psychology and is constantly inspired by the possibilities of her career path. She initially entered university thinking she would pursue educational psychology with a focus on Dyslexia, inspired by assisting in her own young children’s classrooms.

However, having now studied health psychology she is increasingly interested in the ways of impacting behaviors in young people.The opportunity to volunteer with the White Cloud Foundation enables her to see the benefits of applied psychology first hand. Overwhelmingly, positively effecting people’s life was her main impetus to return to study.
