Inspired by the wave of massive pro-immigration reform protests in 2006, Michelle started a career in social justice that same year with a focus on immigrant rights and Latino empowerment.  She has worked for nonprofits in California, Florida, and Texas, and brings 12 years of experience in fund development, communications, and organizational management to her role as Director of Development and Communications. Prior to working in the nonprofit industry, Michelle was a journalist for both English and Spanish-language media outlets in Miami and San Antonio, covering Latin American politics and economics as well as issues impacting Latinos in the U.S.  Michelle holds a BA in International Studies with a minor in Economics from Boston College.
