Michelle Dexter, March 2018
Our Volunteer of the Month for March is Michelle Dexter! Michelle came to EFNE through the Matty Fund where she got involved after her daughter Grace was diagnosed with epilepsy. Never one to sit back, Michelle could be seen at every event from the Snow Angel Ball to Matty Hatty programs to the Matty 5k. Michelle continues to give her time and talent to Epilepsy Foundation New England and the Matty Project. You may have seen her helping out at Matty’s Pumpkin Patch at the last Rhode Island walk in October or been moved by her heartfelt tribute to Debra and Richard Siravo when she spoke in their honor at the 2018 Rhode Island Casino Night Gala.
“Michelle gave a moving tribute speech in honor of Debra and Richard Siravo at the 2018 Rhode Island Gala. She has been an asset to the growth of the Matty Project and Rhode Island Council.” Christina Vilardi, EFNE Rhode Island Field Service Manager.
