Michelle's passion for serving the greater good goes back many years - as a member of CU-Boulder's Alphi Phi Omega service organization, to serving at her children's schools. Michelle's background as an educator complemented her role as the Executive Director of Adam's camp, a small not-for-profit that provides therapy services for children with special needs. Currently, as Business Manager, Michelle's duties involve bookkeeping, managing the Foundation's Voluntary Payroll Deduction program, and all donations fundraised through CraftWorks' many restaurants.
