Michele has been working in the community assisting with crisis intervention for twenty years. Prior to Empowered to Change International, Inc, Michele brought experience from her career in Law Enforcement as an Emergency Dispatcher. She later became a supervisor in a South Georgia Emergency Management Communications Center. Michele’s passion for community empowerment started as a young girl and grew as she interacted with law enforcement and watched the challenges in the community grow critically. She knew that real intervention must come from a place of unification between law enforcement, the judicial system, legislation, and key community leaders. Michele knows that unification is the only means that will bring about a societal system that not only works in tandem with each other but also transforms our society removing barriers that often prevents the growth of the vulnerable. She has an expertise that brings non-profit organizations in a critical state to a table that confronts their differences and empowers the organizations to continue the mission serving communities with integrity.

She works countless hours each week to expose truth in love and then to encourage the participants of ETC to move beyond their current circumstances and begin to walk out their own vision for their life. Michele is an avid conference and public speaker. She has a passion for assisting new organizations by helping them launch their mission.
