Michaela began volunteering as a way to get her confirmation students involved in the community. Although many of them are too young, Michaela has continued to volunteer whenever she can. She has also participated in the Habitat 500 bike ride. You’ll often find her biking to the construction site(s) or events whenever the weather allows. Michaela enjoys volunteering with Habitat because she sees the importance of building community, educating people in the world of house construction, and raising awareness of the needs of low-income families in the area.
She especially loves Habitat’s concept of giving a “hand up” instead of a “hand out.” When she’s not busy volunteering with Habitat, Michaela stays busy biking, working with kids, being active in committees & events at her parish, or teaching Spanish or coaching Enrichment programs during the school year.
