Michelle received a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration from Jones College in 2007 and later pursued her Master’s in Environmental Studies at Florida International University.
During her first year in graduate school, Michelle found much inspiration from her professors, peers and education, that she felt it was time to launch her recycling dream. She decided to drop out of graduate school and fully invest her time and resources into creating her vision. Understanding the real value in education, Michelle continued to ‘sit’ in classes to learn the material without having to pay the cost of tuition.
In her free time, Michelle enjoys spending time with her family, friends and pets as well as training Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. Michelle’s currently a purple belt who enjoys to compete and holds a World Championship title. Her goal is to one day become a Gracie black belt World Champion.
