Michelle is currently the director of strategic initiatives for the YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit. Her lifetime career in non-profit has allowed her to lead numerous projects that have contributed to the development of stronger communities across southeast Michigan. Her background in community service, program development and strategic leadership inform her approach to politics. She knows that a thriving community does not happen without the input and active participation of the constituents.
Fueled by her passion for people, she strives to live a life consistently focused on helping others. Whether it’s through building partnerships with under-resourced schools at work, helping kids and parents in her personal experiences as a foster parent in Macomb County, or helping to lead and develop the employees at her family’s small business in Saint Clair Shores, she uses every opportunity to learn and grow as a woman and leader in the community. Her enthusiasm for life, hunger for knowledge and fierce determination have contributed to her many educational, personal and professional successes.
A resident of Macomb County for more than 30 years, Michelle has lived, worked and raised her family in the community that she now seeks to represent. As a state representative, she vows to listen to and communicate clearly and consistently with, and on behalf of, the community she calls home.
