Hello, my name is Yvonne Fleener. I am so excited to be part of the Origami team! I have a long history working with people with disabilities, beginning as a direct care worker and job coach, then working my way up to executive positions. I have served as the Executive Director of the Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan and the Autism Society of Michigan, Service Area Director of Child and Family Services at St. Vincent Catholic Charities, and Director of Advocacy for Michigan Protection and Advocacy.  I attended Michigan State University where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Public Administration.  The Origami philosophy of helping people live as independently as possible and its welcoming approach to family involvement, are critical factors in making our organization unique and I am honored to be part of it.
