Portrait of Michelle Jones

Michelle Jones

Child life specialist, Shriners Children’s Twin Cities


When Covid-19 restrictions began in March 2020, Shriners Children’s Twin Cities child life specialist Michelle Jones took it upon herself to find ways to continue to provide support during a pandemic, when patients weren’t often being seen face-to-face. She offered services via telehealth and also created a number of videos and handouts about helping children through the pandemic.

Jones has spent her career working with patients from diverse backgrounds, which has offered her opportunities to learn how to creatively adapt interventions to meet the individual needs of patients and families.
