Michelle knows that conflict is a natural part of the human experience and believes that conflict creates an opportunity to transcend barriers and build relationships.
Michelle has a graduate degree in Conflict Transformation from the Centre for Justice and Peacebuilding at Eastern Mennonite University, and a BA in Peace and Conflict Studies from Conrad Grebel University College and the University of Waterloo. Michelle specializes in the area of restorative justice, teaching a course on the topic at the University of Waterloo. Michelle is a trained mediator, circle keeper, and group facilitator.
Michelle understands peacebuilding work as a web with endless opportunity for strategic collaboration and has enthusiasm for changing “hope lines” between peace initiatives into tangible, sustainable partnerships. For Michelle, the Centre for Peace Advancement is a palpable example of strategic collaboration and peacebuilding across disciplines.
Each participant is working to advance peace in a different way. Some are focused on community building, while others on issues of national security – making the Centre a wealth of resources and opportunities.
