Michelle is a graduate of Concordia College with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work and the University of Central Florida with a Master’s in Social Work. Michelle is the mother of two children, Nicholas and Olliana. Ollie became a part of the Barrett family through the miracle of domestic infant adoption and has on-going openness with her birthmother.
