Chandra

Chandra was hired as a driver in 2012. Within four years, Chandra has helped create and shape the Transportation Department. Born with cerebral palsy, Chandra forged her way through the Hollywood scene by training her own service dog to become a studio dog. After several years working in movies and commercials, Chandra decided to follow a life-long dream of becoming a professional driver, and in a short time, accomplished her goal and attained her Commercial Class “A” license for driving just about anything.

Now as lead transportation coordinator, Chandra oversees transport needs of the patients including doctor’s appointments, air travel, outings to the movies, bowling, hiking, and more. She continues to train the staff in preparation for their Commercial Class “B” Licenses. Chandra, a.k.a. “The Transporter”, has become an inspiration to many who come through the doors of Michael’s House. Through Chandra, they see the possibility of what may lie beyond substance abuse and other problems since she has overcome physical obstacles in order to achieve her goals.
