Michele is deeply involved with animal activism and animal rights.  She has helped to rescue calves from the dairy industry and sponsors two beautiful male cows named Simon Cow and Tony, both of whom she found homes for at local animal sanctuaries.  Michele’s dream is to open an animal sanctuary in the next few years.  It will be called Grateful Zoo. Michele volunteers weekly at an animal sanctuary where she has made friends with many pig, sheep, goat, cow, and turkey friends.

In 2018, Michele and her family (husband and two boys) had a dream to build a school in Africa.  Together, they raised the funds to build Sikhulangothando Creche (elementary school), in the Kwazulu Natal region of South Africa. They worked with The Africa Foundation to get approval from the local community and Zulu Chief, and to make the dream a reality.

Michele’s office is located in Larkspur, California.
