Michelle received her B.S. and M.A. from the University of Arizona. As an undergraduate, Michelle was part of the second cohort of Community and School Garden Program (CSGP) interns and has since worked with the CSGP to develop citizen science research opportunities and curriculum for students and teachers. Now in its 5th year, the Supporting Environmental Education & Communities (SEEC) program works with K-12 students across the district to connect them with their school’s garden by performing meaningful participatory environmental research.
