Michelle Baker, LCPC

Mental Health & Wellness Counselor / Varsity Head Coach for Softball

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”- Michael Jordan
