For the past four years, Michelle Kiefer has worked as the executive director of Antelope Valleys Partners for Health. However, she spent 15-years working with non-profit organizations as an executive director, chief financial officer and controller.

As executive director of AVPH, Kiefer studies health issues for strategic planning and training programs. She supervises a staff of 21 employees and about 200 community volunteers. She works with city, county, state and federal officials, public health professionals, political officials and community leaders to promote health education, research and public health awareness in the Antelope Valley. One of her more successful projects have been to partner with the City of Lancaster to place Wellness Homes.

Michelle is also the chief financial officer of the Antelope Valley Community Clinic. The clinic was founded through AVPH and branched off into a successful independent non-profit organization that provides health services to underserved clients unable to afford the high cost of health services.

She also participated in various committees and boards of directors to contribute to mission development and business planning. She continues to be integral in the development of healthy initiatives such as biking and walking trails and pathways to provide connectivity for residents to safely move among neighborhoods and points of interest.

In addition to her bachelor’s degree, in 2003, Ms. Kiefer received her Master of Business Administration degree from University of Phoenix.
