“Michelle is such a pleasure to work with!  Unusually kind, honest and genuine.  She not only did a great job as an emcee for our fundraiser, she went above and beyond!  I recommend Michelle highly to champion your cause, communicate your message or coach anyone on your team. Her purpose in life is evident – to be a positive presence!”

“I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Michelle on a number of occasions during the past two years. As a very busy event planner, I have produced large-scale fundraising events and concerts featuring REO Speedwagon, Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray and other national talent.  Our VIP and celebrity guests have very high expectations during our live events.  Michelle has consistently met and exceeded these very high expectations as a celebrity guest, an emcee, and a public speaker.  She is highly professional, articulate, compassionate and an incredible visionary.”

“Michelle is just incredible in every single way. I had the honor of meeting her a few years ago, and since then, I have only been inspired to be a little more like her every day of my life. She is an incredible coach and has inspired so many women to not only believe in themselves but to believe that they are capable of moving mountains.

She is such a giving, kind, and hardworking woman who always finds time in her busy and crazy life to make someone else feel loved and valued. Her public speaking skills, her way of motivating everyone she comes across, and her energy – all of it truly just is incomparable to anyone I have ever met. I am blessed to call her a lifetime friend, a role model, and a truly beautiful person. We need more people like Michelle in this world. I am blessed to know a person like her.”
