Mission Accomplished!

The Story of Willow Integrated Therapy

Michelle Phibbs had a dream of being an entrepreneur. After becoming a new mom, she honed in on her skills and experience all while building her vision for a new business for over a decade. By November 2019, her vision became a reality and after twelve years of working for others as an occupational therapist, she was able to open her own pediatric practice.

Phibbs’s differentiating approach is that her staff follows the philosophy to carefully individualize pediatric treatment. Each child is seen by a well-trained and experienced therapist in their own setting. Starting with only one therapist and one clinic room, the practice now houses five clinic rooms for multiple therapists to meet with patients.

When asked what her biggest takeaways to success were, Michelle shares that acceptance, building on her strengths, and identifying what to let go of have all been key attributes. Her biggest challenge has been finding the right team and personnel, which is where the SBDC stepped in to help. After teaming up with Regional Director, Charlie Penner, and Growth Consultant, Kathy Miller, the practice started to take off.

Despite the difficulties of facing a global pandemic, Phibbs operates a successful business at Willow Integrated Therapy. Over a three-year period, the practice went from helping 20 families per week to now over 150 families on a consistent weekly basis. Along the way, she was given careful assistance from the SBDC which has been integral to the business’s organic growth. Visit their website below.

Kathie Pereira


Washtenaw Community College’s mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of those we serve with accessible, excellent educational programs and services. Kathie Pereira is an important part of that mission.

Pereira taps into her 15 years of experience in the nursing field to teach WCC’s RN/LPN Skills Refresher course. In addition to teaching at WCC, she currently works as a nurse practitioner at Medical Care 1 Urgent Care. Pereira began teaching the RN/LPN Skills Refresher course at WCC because she enjoys teaching, sharing knowledge with fellow nurses, and upholding the high standards of the nursing profession.

She earned her BSN from the University of Michigan. From there she went to work as a staff nurse at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital for 11 years in various roles and in the cardiac catheterization lab. This extensive experience motivated her to share her knowledge with others as a college instructor. Pereira taught at WCC and then eventually joined the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Concordia University Ann Arbor. She obtained her Master of Science in Nursing-Family Nurse Practitioner from Concordia University Wisconsin in 2022.

“No matter what environment I find myself, whether I’m caring for patients or working with students, educating and learning will always be a big part of what I do. You can never know enough as a provider and it gives me great satisfaction empowering both patients and students with knowledge”, she said.
