Michelle started with GRI as a manager for the coffee shop in 2016. When approached to work with GRI in the offices promoting the businesses, she thought it was the perfect combination to utilize her business skills while working for a great cause. Michelle has a degree in business and was in specialty retail as a buyer before she had children. While she was at home with the kids she founded and directed her own nonprofit for 10 years before joining the workforce again. The work GRI does inspires Michelle to think globally and speaks to her heart for those who don't have a choice in their situation. 

Michelle has been married to Brad for almost 20 years and has 3 awesome teens. They moved to Colorado in 2006 from California and feel at home here. Working with GRI is so enjoyable and has been a blessing to Michelle and her family.
