Having moved to California just over 20 years now, Michele is originally from Florida where she worked in Event Management and Film Production. In Los Angeles she began in the locations industry for film and television for 11 years before deciding to move towards a more meaningful career in fundraising for nonprofits. Having been a mentor for a local nonprofit for nearly 8 years, she accepted a position there as Development Director. After 5 years, Michele was searching for a way to give back to a broader audience and found that path with the Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust (LANLT). Since April 2020, Michele has been responsible for communicating the impact LANLT has had for over 400,000 Angelenos to supporters, donors and foundations and helping to raise almost $500,000 each year so that we may continue to reduce the park and health equity gap across the County.
