Michelle joined the UWYC team in September of 2021 as the Out-of-School Time Manager. She oversees the operations and delivery of service for six CARE Academy sites throughout Yellowstone County. This program benefits a child’s academic, social, and personal development. Helping children stay safe and supporting their development through learning opportunities they may not have access to without this program is what makes her love her work.
Q&A with Michelle
What is your go-to motivational/pump-up song?
If you could send a note to yourself in 2030, what would it say?
Do what you love, love what you do. Make time for yourself and give yourself time to breathe. Never stop learning, laughing and loving.
What the world needs now is....
Compassion and understanding. Everyone is going through a period of uncertainty and if we can simply remember that we are here for the purpose of love and connection, we will persevere and thrive.
What is your favorite place on earth?
Anywhere there are palm trees and a beach with salty ocean breezes.
Is there anything else you want to share about yourself?
I am so happy to be a part of such a wonderful organization and am looking forward to what the future brings! I love to spend time with my husband, my yellow lab Honey, and my grown son. I have lived most of my life in Billings, but love to travel and discover new recipes from around the world. I live to garden, cook with my husband and spend as much time in the sun as possible.
