Appointed to Trinity in July 2021, Michelle previously served as pastor of St. Mark UMC, Charleston, associate pastor at Simpsonville UMC and Aldersgate UMC, Greenville, and pastor of Green Pond UMC, Gray Court. She was born in Western North Carolina and grew up primarily in Greenville, SC. She graduated from USC Upstate when it was USCS with a BS in Biology, a BA in Political Science. She then attended Northern Illinois University and earned a MA in Public Policy and Biopolitics.

After working for a number of years, marrying husband Chris, and having son Joshua, she was called into the ministry. She graduated from Duke Divinity School and was commissioned as a provisional elder in 2010. Michelle was ordained in 2013. She loves preaching, creative altar design, and seeing people come alive in their faith. She loves coffee, chocolate, strawberries, blueberries, and peaches, and ice cream. She is a Star Wars and Marvel fan (she had no choice with Chris & Joshua). She enjoys the outdoors and her and Chris' new (to them) sailboat on Lake Hartwell. And like most pastors, she loves, and usually needs a good Sunday afternoon nap!
