Michelle was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is a huge Pittsburgh sports fan (Go Steelers, Bucs and Penguins!). Before arriving in Fresno, she had never stepped foot in California. She spent 12 years in the Cincinnati, Ohio area before moving to the Central Valley. She is a proud alumna of the Indiana University School of Library and Information Sciences. Michelle has really enjoyed getting to know Fresno County and seeing so much agriculture up close. Although Michelle finds the weather to be entirely too hot for most of the year, she has enjoyed the "winters" in Fresno. It is nice not having to shovel snow and not dealing with yet another Polar Vortex. Michelle’s countywide special services areas include citizenship, immigration and ESL.
