Michelle (she/her/hers) joined GLAD in January 2023 during her last semester as a Master’s in Management Hospitality Student at Boston University. Michelle started her career as an Associate Researcher in Neuroscience at Icahn School of Medicine and then medical school student at George Washington University where she was elected Class Social Chair. However, when she found herself thinking more about organizing social events than studying, she left to pursue a career in event planning and has never looked back.
Since her career change in 2018, Michelle has worked as a Starbucks Barista, restaurant server, Food & Beverage manager, and event planner. She graduated with a Master’s in Management Hospitality from Boston University in 2023.
While away from GLAD, Michelle spends time participating in queer sports leagues where she and her friends become overly competitive about childhood games such as kickball and dodgeball.
