Michele is finishing up her MA in strategic communication at American University and comes to Veracity after working in the international development and global health space for the past few years. She is particularly interested in nonprofit and advocacy communication and is passionate about using communication to facilitate positive change around social and political issues. Michele is currently a graduate fellow with AU’s Center for Media & Social Impact, and through her work there, she’s developed a deep interest in using storytelling and narratives to create change. Although she’s a DC/Northern Virginia native, Michele has a serious case of wanderlust after living abroad for a year (life goal: visit all 50 states and all 7 continents!). In her spare time, she loves to try out new recipes and DIY projects, unwind with some video games, and explore our Nation’s capital.
