Our Team

Michele is dedicated to empowering people to create change for themselves and in their communities and to bringing people together across divides and difference. An experienced facilitator, trainer, and community builder, Michele most recently served as the Associate Director of National Young Leadership at ADL (Anti-Defamation League), where she engaged and mobilized young professionals across the country to address issues of bias, discrimination, and hate. Before her time with ADL, Michele was a Fellow at the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Philanthropies supporting the foundation’s North American Jewish communal portfolio and leadership development work. She graduated from the University of Michigan with a BA in Psychology and Judaic Studies and a minor in Community Action and Social Change. Her facilitation, program development, and training experience spans multiple frameworks of dialogue, intergroup relations, and community building, including experience with Resetting the Table, ADL’s World of Difference Institute and The Program on Intergroup Relations at the University of Michigan. Based in Michigan, Michele loves playing basketball, exploring national parks, and cheering on the US Women’s national soccer team.
