Headshot of Doctor Michele Wilkins, Executive Director of Child's Voice

Michele Wilkins, Ed.D. LSLS Cert. AVEd

If you ask her, Dr. Michele’s role as the Executive Director is to lead the most fantastic organization in Illinois! She began in July 1999 after a call from Jean Moog encouraging her to apply for this position. Michele says that having the opportunity to work alongside such a dedicated and committed staff and to work with the passionate families and their children gives her complete joy! More importantly, knowing that Child’s Voice makes a difference in the lives of others can only be felt with the deepest, sincerest respect and admiration for the families that let us.

Michele and her husband, Chuck, live in the western suburbs. They have two grown children, one in Illinois and the other in Michigan.

Michele belongs to many professional organizations that support Executive Directors, Special Education, Deaf Education, and Nonprofit Organizations. In her spare time, she enjoys water aerobics, reading, gardening, and being with family and friends. Michele and Chuck love to travel; their last trip was a Mediterranean cruise visiting more than 10 ports. This July they will celebrate their 39th wedding anniversary.
