Before leading outreach for Abl’s Impact team, she was the Director of Summits and Professional Learning at EdSurge, facilitating 23 Ed Tech summits across the U.S. Michelle cares deeply about creating authentic learning opportunities for students, especially where they can pursue their interests and passions through project-based learning (PBL).

To relax, she enjoys growing heirloom tomatoes and listening to records (yes, vinyl).
