Tell me in 100 words who you are? How would you describe yourself.

So tell us, Michelle: What inspires you most? What motivates you to get up every morning?

I love to coach people and help them see their greatest strengths authentically.

What is it that you feel that you teach others through how you act/show up each day?

I teach others to stop being a people pleaser, and focus on pleasing themselves. Life is too short to worry about what other people think and say.

What is one change you’d like to see in the world?

I would love to see people’s actions speak louder than words. People have so many things to say and don’t do a great job following up.

Which of your contributions to date have given you the greatest sense of pride?

If you know a leader we should feature please invite her to share her story with us here.
