GENERAL MANAGER, ARBORSTONE ENHANCED CARE
Originally from Westville, Nova Scotia, Michelle Clark was inspired to pursue a career in nursing at a young age. Michelle completed her studies at Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC), first becoming a Continuing Care Assistant (CCA) and then training as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Since 2009, Michelle has been a valued member of the Shannex team in various roles with increasing responsibility. “As an LPN, I have been given opportunities that have promoted my professional development,” she says,
reflecting on her early days with Shannex. Michelle began her career in the Annapolis Valley South Shore region, working as a front-line LPN in several Shannex nursing homes before joining Arborstone as Community Manager and Education Coordinator.
In 2019, Michelle continued her leadership journey as the Health Services Manager at Parkland at the Gardens, a retirement living community in downtown Halifax. There, Michelle excelled in her role,
helping residents maintain independence and social connection while accessing a range of supports and care. When the opportunity to rejoin the team at Arborstone was shared, Michelle decided to return to her roots in long term care. She became General Manager in September 2022 and has continued her work as a passionate and dedicated leader. Those who know Michelle describe her as thoughtful, caring and warm, with a natural talent of helping others navigate the fast pace of life. “I’m proud of the career and life I’ve built,” she says.
“The past 13 years have been nothing short of amazing.”
