She received her Payroll Compliance Practitioner designation in 2004 and has been involved in payroll and human resources since that time.

Michelle grew up in British Columbia, and moved to Edmonton at the age of 16. Prior to working at REACH, Michelle was a successful business owner. In 2012, she chose to move to the non-profit sector. She is the mother of five adult children and seventeen grandchildren which makes her an expert in human resources.
Her passion for people and to be a leader in the non-profit sector has been a driving force behind her work. She is passionate about people and has always looked for innovative ways to help employees succeed.
She continues to strive for excellence and to be a leader in the industry.
