About Michelle

Born and raised in New Hampshire, Michelle has been passionate about helping others throughout her life. That passion has manifested in many ways.

As a teen and young adult:

  • Volunteered with special need students in Concord
  • Worked with underprivileged youth with The Maryland Student Service Alliance

After college, Michelle chose to work for community service and health care organizations including:

  • National Kidney Foundation of New Hampshire
  • Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center’s urban youth programs
  • Children’s Hospital Department of Neurosurgery

More recently, she has had the opportunity to support and help motivate employees for three multi-national companies.

When Michelle moved to Hollis in 2013, she helped to establish the Hollis Parks Project. This organization raised $75k to improve our community play spaces in Hollis. It was a wonderful way to meet her fellow residents and make a lasting contribution to her new community.

In 2016, Michelle ran for, and was elected to the Hollis School Board for a one-year term. She was re-elected in 2017 for a three-year term and has served as that Board’s Secretary for the last two years. During her first year on the board she served as a member of the Hollis School Board Energy study to explore energy efficient heating alternative for the two school buildings in the district. This year she is serving as Treasurer of the SAU41 Governing Board’s Budget Committee.

Michelle currently works as an Information Officer for the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission, which allows her to combine her passion for the environment with her professional skills as a writer and communicator.

Why is Michelle running?

To put it simply, she wants to give back to her community and make our state better, stronger, and accessible to all.

The issues that keep Michelle up at night:

  • Education
  • The Environment
  • Infrastructure
  • Families, Seniors, & Veterans
  • Fiscal Responsibility
  • Jobs and our Economy
