Over the past 16 years Michele has had the opportunity to be part of some great ministries spanning from Illinois to California. With a potpourri of job descriptions and a diversity of age groups, Michele has been blessed by this experience and training and feels compelled to give that away to others. Her passion for developing leaders is what brought her to Ohio in 2006. Since then, she has developed a children’s ministry in her local church and a leadership environment that helps kids and students be all they can be for Christ. Michele has been serving in full time ministry since 1999. In 2013, Michele became a certified speaker, trainer and leadership coach with the John Maxwell team and continues to have a passion to teach, train and develop leaders of any age. In 2014, Michele married Charles Thompson and they were blessed to be able to create a blended family with Charles’ twin daughters.
