Board of Directors, Board Member
Michelle is excited to join Ruff Start Rescue as a Board member. She has had numerous rescue pups throughout her life and most recently adopted Mitzi, (now named Mackey) a chihuahua/terrier mix in 2020.
Michelle joins the board with 35 years of Human Resources experience. She currently is retired but still does some consulting work when she can. She spent most of her career in the manufacturing industry in all aspects of HR and business leadership. She holds a B.S. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Illinois State University and a M.B.A from the University of St. Thomas.
Michelle and her husband Mark reside in Plymouth, MN. She loves the outdoors, cooking and fishing, but also playing and snuggling with Mackey. She and Mark are avid road trippers to see the countryside, visit family and hang out at the family cabin in Wisconsin.
