Michele Miller has been a full-time Realtor for the past 10 years, and is the founder of the Central Mass Lyme Foundation. Michele witnessed firsthand the debilitating effects of this disease when she lost her Mom, Jeanne Cloutier in 2013. As both Ken and Michele observed Jeanne's suffering and read her despair in her journals, they recognized the need to help raise awareness, educate, teach prevention and provide support in their local community. Michele and Ken hope this conference will bring even more awareness to not only the general public, but to the medical community. In her spare time, Michele enjoys shopping for antiques, spending time with family and friends, and walking her dog, Lucy.
