After earning her B.A. in International Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Michelle worked on a remote island in Uganda's part of Lake Victoria. She learned about the community's approach to agricultural development, which led her to work for an internationally-focused agriculture and natural resource management organization in Washington D.C. Interested in helping solve problems in her own backyard, Michelle eventually became a teacher and worked with English Language Learners before moving to Costa Rica to create environmental and outdoor adventure education programs for young people from around the world. Michelle earned her Masters degree in Educational Leadership for Global Higher Education and worked for Ashoka, an organization focused on scaling social solutions for the greater good, before moving to Sonoma County. She currently runs the North Bay site for the California International Studies Project, based at Sonoma State University and supports k-12 educators as they bring global education to their students.
