Hi. I'm Michelle. Nice to meet you! I'm a social worker by trade, a former minister, a non-profit director, and an urban community development professional who is now focusing on several social enterprise ventures that strive to empower women.
I am grateful that my life's work has centered around building into and empowering others. With a degree in social work, I've been able to spend my career mentoring others, developing and implementing programs, coaching, and training in the non-profit sector.
My work has primarily taken place in marginalized urban communities, which has given me more than I could give back. In this context, I discovered my passion for social entrepreneurship, with a focus on personal and economic development and creating positive change.
One of the projects I started a few years ago was an urban entrepreneur training program, which launched numerous new businesses.
I'm motivated to continue helping female entrepreneurs, particularly those in minority groups such as women of color and the LQBTQIA+ community. My passion for this comes from two distinct perspectives. I believe women can usher in meaningful transformation on a local and global level. Additionally, as a transgender woman, I am devoted to uplifting my own community.
My goal is to help create a network of passionate, like-minded women who are leading and creating change through their businesses and families.
Flourish Enterprisesis the main, overall business to facilitate the mission of female empowerment. Our goal is to launch multiple businesses, and train and place qualified CEOs.
Vibrant, empowering community
