Michelle has been with the Forest Society since 2009, and has worked in both finance, and human resources. Narrowing her focus to human resources in 2011, Michelle received a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification, and then in 2015, received her BS in Business Studies and Organizational Leadership, as well as a Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM-CP) certification.
Prior to working at the Forest Society Michelle held positions in a wide range of companies including land clearing & pallet manufacturing, electronics, insurance, and restaurants; one of which she owned. Her love of forested lands comes from growing up using the forest as a renewable resource, spending summers with her father and brother cutting, and stacking, cords of wood to burn throughout the winter months.
Michelle lives in Henniker with her husband, where they own rental properties, a trucking company, and a firewood business. When not working, Michelle enjoys being outdoors, reading by the pool, and spending time with her two sons and dogs.
