Past Projects: On completion of her clinical Masters in Music Therapy, Mikaela returned to her home town East London. In 2005 after meeting with a group of desperate parents, and the help of just the right people at just the right time, opened the non profit organization Canaan Care Centers, an edu-therapy facility for children with severe physical and mental disabilities, in East London, South Africa. From 2005 to 2009, Mikaela was Director at Canaan, and established its roots in the city of East London. Canaan was the first facility to tasks including feeding, toileting and had little or no means of communication. All of the children attending the center are non verbal and received all their required therapies on site. Over the past eleven years Canaan has grown in strength, touching the lives of all who have walked through its doors. Mikaela is currently a Clinical Supervisor to the Music Therapy Masters Programme at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. Mikaela has been an External Examiner to the Music Therapy Masters Programme at the University of Pretoria, South Africa for the past 10 years.
