In addition to her provincial experience, Michelle has also worked in the field of Continuing Education at a local level in Central Alberta, as well as providing supports to agencies in her role as Community Facilitator with the Town of Olds. She has had the privilege of working with people and organizations across the province and the motivation behind that work has always been to help mobilize and empower groups so that they may achieve their goals.
