Michle received a B.S. in Education from Georgia State University, and a Masters of Theological Studies and Certificate in Spiritual Direction from Spring Hill College.

Her approach to being a spiritual director/companion is a combination of Franciscan and Jesuit spirituality. This approach shares both the intellectual gift of the Jesuits and the simplicity of the Franciscans. Her ministry welcomes people of all faiths and offers workshops for various denominations. Michele is also involved in prison ministry, reaching out to the most marginalized of our society and works with the National Incarceration Association for greater awareness that justice should be restorative and not retributive.

Michele knows that it is through relationship with one another and with God that we truly find our purpose in life, and grow in the love of God. She considers herself more of a companion on the way, and walks beside you in your journey.
