Michelle has been involved in education for nearly 16 years as a Principal and Leadership positions, and as an advocate for children, as well as a voice for parents. She is especially passionate about helping underserved children gain access to quality education. Her interest in education sparked while working in Charter Schools; she was confronted with the reality that not every child is granted an equal opportunity to receive a great education due to life challenges. Now, while working at SA Youth and the YouthBuild program, she is increasing educational opportunities for students and choices for parents. She enjoys working with children and knowing that she is making a difference in their lives. As the Chief of Young Adult Programming Officer, she assists students in what they want and need in life to help them become successful!
