Farewell to MSHL’s Executive Director:
Jennifer Michalak!

21 years ago, I fell in love—with working here …. for you. I began as “the lunch lady” with Hermione Fauser teaching me the ropes in the kitchen. Through that, I saw how having people in our lives as well as programs and services can strengthen our ability to age with independence and dignity. And I deeply believe in the importance of that! We have seen much growth and change over these past years—adding a transportation service, becoming a nonprofit organization, providing Meals on Wheels, plus more. So much blood, sweat and tears have been shed along with laughter, love, and joy. I have always maintained that it is all about the relationships, and I have been blessed by the many ways I have been enriched by all of you. It is now time for both MSHL and me to transition to the next phase. I will be moving to the west side of the state to support family needs, and MSHL will flourish under the gifts and talents of the beautiful lady below. But I will be around until August so there’s plenty of time to say goodbye.

Welcome MaryAnn Opal!

“I will strive daily to be a person of Integrity, Cheerfulness and Energy.”

I knew from an early age that my desire was to help people. It is my passion to put a smile on the faces of those who have endured the storms of life; to be a burst of sunshine in their day. Early on, I combined my ambition and my love for the elderly when I began working as a nurse’s aide in an assisted living community and also in home health care. I later served as the director of a local senior program and established a business providing cosmetology services to homebound seniors. I then founded a very successful business in the world of sales, marketing, events, and business consulting. I have spent the last 15 years in the Sunny South. My husband and I are returning home to be near our adorable grandsons. I feel like I have been preparing my whole life for this next phase. I get to work with seniors in my hometown! Seniors and Milan, it doesn’t get much better than this! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be the Executive Director for MSHL; it is an honor and a privilege. I am so excited to meet each of you, and hear your stories belly laughs and tears, I embrace them all. I feel so fortunate to get to live my passion.
