Michelle has called Western North Carolina home for the last 12 years. Her first role at GRP was as a Mentor in 2007 and 2008, and as an Assistant Program Coordinator in 2009. Currently, she manages professional development programs and supports a variety of state-wide and nationals projects for the Environmental Educators of North Carolina, a statewide non-profit that supports environmental educators in our state. Michelle is a certified North Carolina Environmental Educator and has a Master’s of Arts in Education with a focus in Science Education. Her passion is empowering educators with tools that will help them provide equitable and inclusive learning. She is so excited to return to GRP this summer, and to share it with her own young camper!
