Michelle earned a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership from MidAmerica Nazarene University. This opened a door for her to join the board of directors for the Feed His Lambs Foundation, which provides nutritious meals to struggling community members. Since that time, Michelle served in a variety of volunteer roles, including working as the volunteer coordinator for over nine years. Michelle believes giving back through volunteerism is vital to the unity of a community, as well as humbling and valuable to the volunteers themselves. In 2021, Michelle felt the call to move out of her 32-year profession as an educational sign language interpreter to become the hands and feet of Jesus by serving God’s people. At the end of 2021, she was humble and excited to join the team at The Single Mom KC and to work with the volunteers and moms.
After 19 years of marriage, Michelle found herself to be a single mom to her two children, a freshman and a junior in high school. Michelle has felt the struggles of being a one-income household and understands obstacles of living as a single person. Michelle is enthusiastic about the chance to join TSMKC in walking alongside single moms as they move toward healing and restoration for a hope filled future.
On a fun note, Michelle loves spending time with her family and is thrilled to be the grandma of two energetic and loving grandchildren. She loves being outside, dancing, making crafts, and roller-skating with her granddaughter.
