Michelle Dykstra has worked in various roles in our Corporate Accounting office since 1999, and currently works with accounting and payroll. She came from a background of working in banking, but a friend,who loved working here told Michelle about a job opening.
"I enjoy the people I work with, and the Christian atmosphere and culture Providence offers both employees and residents," she says. "I enjoy and appreciate the kindness and teamwork my coworkers and management provide."
Michelle is detail-oriented, so that aspect of her job fits her perfectly. But it is more than the job itself that has given her so much joy. "This is almost like a second home with my work family," she says.
In her time at Providence, she has so many great memories, including the potluck lunches and summer picnics, the Hallmark of Caring cruise she was honored at, and Paylocity conventions to learn more about Payroll.
Michelle lives in Highland, Indiana, with Lou, her husband of 25 years, her daughter Katie and son Nick. They also have a dog Kimber and cat Roxy. Outside of work, she enjoys camping and boating up in Michigan. “I enjoy a campfire at night and a good book to read down by the beach during the day.” Michelle also enjoy the shooting range, fishing, puzzles, gardening, and hopes to travel a lot someday.
Michelle is always helpful, and her longevity at Providence has given her the ability to answer so many questions! We are grateful for her dedication and skill.
