Michelle envisions an organization that bridges sectoral and disciplinary divides. The amalgamation of CSIH and CCGHR signals a merger of practice and research. CAGH-ACSM is in a strong position to nurture and sustain this synthesis, as the organization engages practitioners, scholars, SYPs, and many others. There remains a need in global health to work across disciplines, which she thinks CAGH-ACSM is similarly well-positioned to address. She hopes to help execute this vision by bringing drive and energy. Michelle believes her experience in public policy development and engaging stakeholders from around the world can help to attract others in different disciplines, and bridge sectoral and disciplinary divides to promote more global engagement.

Michelle's work is guided by the following mantra: “Many small people who in many small places do many small things that can alter the face of the world
