Michele grew up in Baltimore, Maryland and graduated from Hood College after studying Elementary and Special Education.  

As a sophomore in high school, Michele chose the topic of abortion for a project in her speech class. Through research for the assignment, she learned the heart-breaking truth about abortion and knew immediately that she was pro-life. However, with nowhere to really serve at the time, it wasn’t until after college, at the Maryland March for Life, that Michele finally discovered Students for Life. Not wanting other students to miss opportunities to live out their pro-life convictions the way she had in school, she made the decision to resign from teaching and serve the pro-life movement full-time.  

In her work, it also became very clear how divided the church is on the issue of abortion. Michele serves as Pastor of Care and Outreach in her local church and works alongside fellow pastors and ministry leaders in how to talk about abortion. 

Michele has spoken at the National Pro-Life Summit, Maryland March for Life, National March for Life Youth Rally, Philadelphia Respect Life Day, various rallies, banquets, all school assemblies, and in classrooms teaching Pro-Life Apologetics lessons. 

Michele currently resides in Maryland and serves the Pro-Life Generation as Students for Life’s Director of Strategic Initiatives. In large part, this work includes overseeing the work of SFLA’s Campaign for Abortion Free Cities.
