Michelle is the Assistant Director of Science for Communications at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. She is a graduate of Waukesha South High School and had been named a Woman of Tomorrow by the Women and Girls Fund of Waukesha County.


Her presentation, Finding Home: From the Waukesha Public Library to the edge of the Universe, will attempt to answer the question, just how big is our home? Waukesha may be an unimaginably tiny piece of the universe, but it is still part of something vast and wonderful—a place with more than 4,000 planets orbiting other stars in the sky, and possible life-friendly environments on Mars and the moons of the giant planets.
