Michelle Carpenter – Executive Director

Joining Dakota Counseling Institute in 1995 as the Business Manager, I have been serving as the Executive Director since 2002. A Dakota Wesleyan University graduate with a Business Degree specializing in Accounting, my emphasis is the fiscal and contracting operations of all the agency programs. Over the last decade, the Mental Health Outpatient and Pathway programs have had the opportunity to merge with the drug and alcohol programs now known as Stepping Stones, as well as obtain Westview Apartments and Rosewood Court Assisted Living.
