The Odinets

Dr. Ken Odinet and his wife, Michelle married in 1995 and moved to Lafayette to start, and eventually raise their family in a safe and growing community. They quickly learned what a special place we live in – a wonderful, diverse community, filled with people who genuinely care for each other and who have a unique Joie de Vivre (Joy of Life).

Pay It Forward

Giving back to the community has always been a core philosophy of the Odinets. Whether through a monetary donation, sponsorship, acts of service, donation of supplies, or volunteer work, Ken and Michelle have supported many philanthropic organizations over the years that are working diligently to help to improve our community making it a better place to live, work and play – for everyone.
