Preferred pronouns: She/her

With parents from Colombia and Ecuador, Michelle is a former New Yorker and has lived in the Triangle for over 15 years. She is passionate about social justice, healing, and racial equity work. Her focus at El Pueblo is fundraising  and racial equity work, but her favorite part is sharing El Pueblo’s work with the community and connecting them with issues that matter to them.

Michelle loves to dance – play her a song with a good beat and she won’t stop moving! She is also very extroverted, so she really enjoys spending time with friends and loved ones. When she’s not being social, she’s either reading, painting, playing video games on her Nintendo Switch, or hanging out with her cat, Panda. She’s also a Libra sun, rising Sagittarius, and Pisces moon.
