Personally and professionally, Michelle has always strived to be a number of things, but top of that list has always been advocate. Having had many people advocate for her during her life Michelle understands exactly how important a voice for the voiceless can be. After graduating with her Bachelor of Art in Sociology from Purdue University, Michelle began her career in social work working with children and families in crisis dealing with various positions. Some requiring emergency intervention sometimes working with state providers and private providers. Michelle greatly enjoyed working with families but soon realized there were limitations to her impact as a social worker and began looking toward fighting as a legal advocate. Michelle attended Roosevelt University in Chicago's paralegal program and began to discover how she could help from within the legal system.

After re-locating to Georgia in 2009 Michelle was able to realize her dream of becoming an attorney by attending Atlanta's John Marshall Law School. Michelle graduated with her Juris Doctorate in 2014. Passed the bar exam in October of 2015 and was sworn in as a member of the bar in December of 2015. Since then, Michelle has worked hard with clients from all walks of life to ensure their voice is heard in the courtroom and beyond. Including becoming a Guardian ad litem in Gordon County Georgia in 2020. So far in her career, Michelle has enjoyed working with all kinds of people, families, and situations and looks forward to assisting many more going forward.

When she is done advocating in the court room, Michelle likes to take some time for herself by hiking, paddle boarding, and kayaking Georgia's wilderness and waterways with her dog. Michelle dedicates as much free time as possible to her extended family network and attempts to visit them all over the United States.
