Michaela is an East Carolina University alum living in Durham. She first moved to Durham to serve in AmeriCorps, and fell in love with the city and its community, so she stuck around even after her years of service ended. After serving, she went on to work at UNC for a department within the School of Education that focused on literacy education and equitable education practices. There she assisted with community outreach, volunteer management, program development and making sure everyone in the office had enough coffee to survive the day. Most recently, she worked at DPAC as the Event Manager, where she was able to work closely with front of house staff and volunteers to help bring the gift of live entertainment to the community.
Outside of work, Michaela can be found baking, attempting to twist herself into a new yoga pose, or watching every movie ever made with her boyfriend. She is very excited to join the team at TABLE, and be back as a part of the Carrboro community.
