When Michael Chambers decided to get a degree in Social Services as a way to give back to his community, he planned to work with young boys. However, when he got a job at The Villages two-and-a-half years ago, he realized life had another thing in mind for him. Currently the Life Enrichment Coordinator at Village Place, Michael is in charge of planning and executing the activities and outing for the residents. He’s also a good friend to many of the residents, and someone they enjoy spending time with. “Every day I come to work with a smile, knowing I get to impact somebody’s life,” Michael says. Michael says his job is all about the residents, anything he can do to make their lives better because they deserve that. “More than anything I enjoy my day-to-day interaction with this population. This is where life brought me and I’m happy for it every day.” And so are the residents of Village Place!
