Michelle Draper—Visitor Services/Bookkeeper


Michelle Draper discovered the Arboretum 17 years ago when she enrolled her children in nature preschool and summer camps. From there, they became volunteers and camp counselors; this experience inspired one to work as a ranger with the National Park Service! Michelle wished to give back to the place and people who gave so much to her family. She began volunteering with the Arboretum's youth programs, then accepted a position at the front desk, where she's the first to greet visitors upon their arrival. Michelle also serves as the Arboretum's bookkeeper. A Master Naturalist trainee and avid gardener, Michelle enjoys giving trail suggestions and highlighting seasonal plants and wildlife. She can't wait to see you at the Arboretum!
