Michelle holds a Bachelor of Administration and Commercial Studies from the University of Western Ontario and a Master of Business Administration from the Schulich School of Business at York University. She also earned a graduate diploma in ‘Business and the Environment’ and a certificate in ‘Green Project Management’. Michelle had many years of professional experience in various sectors before making the switch to the environmental sector in 2012. She has since worked with several Ontario-based solar companies before joining Guelph Solar in 2022. Michelle’s passion for the environment largely stems from her 20+ years as an avid scuba diver, having witnessed the devastating effects of climate change on our oceans. When she isn’t travelling and discovering underwater wonders, Michelle can be found at a yoga, meditation, or dance class, or exploring the trails of Guelph with her 4-year-old rescue dog from Bali, Indonesia.
