About Ginny Machiela

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Writing (Technical & Creative) from Northern Michigan University. I have been with Copper Shores since 2014, when I started working overnights on the crisis line. I helped develop a number of programs over the years, and currently work remotely from Marquette to support sustainability across the agency. I am part of various coalitions and certified in Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST).
