Although Michelle wears various hats such as entrepreneur and speaker, back in 2009, Michelle wore a very different title. Michelle shares her TEDx story of the time she spent married to a man accused of some of the most heinous crimes imaginable against children, and how she became the indirect victim of his crimes through publicity and stigma. She was harassed by her community, her home was attacked, and she fell into a deep depression all the while trying to mitigate the emotional impact this had on her young daughter. She became Visible for the wrong reasons.
More than a decade has passed since then and Michelle has moved past the shame she felt for so long to become a successful entrepreneur with a supportive family, and no longer wears the label of "wife of a paedophile". Instead, Michelle, who has been featured in People management, HR Grapevine, The Guardian, The BBC and Sky TV and is now best known for her people empowerment slogan #AskForMore and is fulfilling her purpose of making the InVisible Visible.
