Founder and Consultant

Seeing the inequities in the educational system and the lack of leaders of color that mirrored the communities they served, Michelle made it her life mission to improve and sustain schools through diversity recruitment and retention. After 13+ years of leading talent management initiatives for public and charter school networks and designing community engagement strategies, Michelle founded MK Consulting Group, LLC. Her goal is to help schools and organizations create more diverse and equitable workspaces that truly value all leaders, especially BIPOC, for their unique talents and lived experiences.​

Michelle has a Master of Business Administration in Project Management, a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications, MBTI Certified Practitioner, Surge Institute Fellow, Chicago Urban League IMPACT Leadership Fellow, Associate Board of Golden Apple Foundation, a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and SHRM Chicago.
