As a Central State University Extension Educator, she provides outreach education and support to beginning farmers (those with less than 10 years of experience), alternative agriculture, and underserved populations. Michelle grew up on a Kibbutz in Israel where she worked alongside her dad in the Kiwi vineyards and apple orchards.

While more of a beginning beekeeper, she will share information about the research being done at Central State to improve bee genetics.
