Michelle Marcoux no longer works for the Ann Arbor CIL.
Michelle works as an Americorps VISTA member with the Career Services Team and also supports fundraising and special events activities. Michelle first got involved with the Ann Arbor CIL in 2009 as a volunteer receptionist and is excited to be expanding her role at the CIL through the Americorps VISTA program.
In 2007, Michelle experienced a traumatic car accident and got involved with the CIL a short time later. All who know Michelle can attest she is a very positive person, and she says she feels compelled to educate other job seekers to keep a positive attitude. Michelle says sharing her story is exciting for her because talking about her journey is an obstacle she has overcome with the help of the Career Services team at the CIL.
Prior to her accident, Michelle was an administrative professional in different industries. She worked long weeks and had many exciting and challenging opportunities. She also worked in fundraising as a president of Lioness club in Mt. Clements. Her love of volunteering started at a young age. She says working on resuming her career after her accident has been very challenging and is well aware of the challenges people with a disability face.
Michelle completed her degree in Retail Sales and Marketing at Kirtland Community College in Roscommon, Michigan.
Michelle has two children who live in Sterling Heights. In her spare time, Michelle loves to read, go snowmobiling, and get muddy on 4-wheelers. She says her dad was a racecar driver so she couldn't help growing up with a love of cars. She is also very active with her church, Accelerate, in Ypsilanti.
