We had about 300 youth attend and they loved Michelle. She had so much energy, great information, and shared fun, inspiring, and informational stories. The girls didn't want her to stop. We really liked her stories about the Bear Attack and her Italian aunt in New York. The girls were giggling. She also dressed up like a Harry Potter character for part of the presentation which really got their attention and helped them relate to what she is saying. Many of the girls thanked her afterward and felt like they had tools they could go home and use to help ease stress. I would definitely recommend Michelle and will ask her to come again to our young women's group.
Her passion is teaching Stress Management, Connection and Contribution. She created a concept called "CONNECT" that is a high energy program for team building, leadership, and resiliency training. During an opportunity to present in Guatemala, she learned the art of 'work until you ache at night' and how to accomplish goals you never thought possible. She loves helping people create hope and commitment in the workplace, in relationships, and in there personal lives. She will entertain audiences young and old, have you laughing and learning at the same time. She is a veteran people person and speaks for business conferences, women's workshops, youth groups, and personal trainings.
She graduated in 1993 from Brigham Young University with degrees in Health Education, Social Science, and earned a Teaching Certificate. She graduated in 2010 from University of Phoenix with a Masters Degree in School Counseling. She started her business, Top Utah Speakers, in 2016 and hasn't looked back since.
She has traveled the globe speaking to youth and adult audiences everywhere. She has spoken in Mexico, Guatemala and across the United States.
She won an award for making the best sweet chili, enjoys traveling, and loves every one of her kids (even when they eat the LAST chocolate chip cookie). Michelle resides in Alpine, Utah with her 5 children, two dogs, and 1 husband.
On stage she is engaging, entertaining, informational, and expects the audience to take accountability for their choices and actions. Life? You Got This!
