Michelle Sparks

IRIS Consultant


Prior to coming to Midstate Independent Living Choices (MILC), I worked as a case manager with the Portage County Adult Treatment Court and Community Supervision Program. I worked with individuals living with addiction, mental health issues as well individuals involved in the criminal justice system. I worked with participants in Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) sessions, and referred individuals to community resources.

I live on a small farm with my husband. We raise beef cattle, chickens and pigs. We have five (5) children and nine (9) grandchildren. We also have two (2) fur-babies, a Golden Retriever named Lou and a Lancashire Heeler name Charlie. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, take road trips on my motorcycle and sit on by back deck with a cup of coffee and enjoy the simplicity of country living.

I look forward to meeting you and assisting you in meeting your self-directed goals.
