Hello from Michelle, Newest Member of the Microenterprise Project

September 14, 2017

I am elated to be working for the Microenterprise Project at VOLS as an AmeriCorps VISTA. As a VISTA, AmeriCorps has placed me to serve for a year with an organization that works to counter domestic inequality. The Microenterprise Project does just that, by creating access and opportunities for micro-entrepreneurs and small business owners.

Before joining AmeriCorps and VOLS, I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Honors College at Florida International University. I was a Student Fellow at Startup FIU, which is dedicated to fostering an entrepreneurial spirit in FIU’s students.I plan to pursue a legal career.

I look forward to meeting and working with our clients and partners, including volunteer law firms and community organizations. I’m so excited to be joining such a wonderful team at VOLS.
