As the manager of our philanthropy efforts, Michell joined Fight CRC in May 2014 where she coordinates relationships with individuals and organizations who donate and fundraise for Fight Colorectal Cancer. She’s an advocate for quality healthcare for all and passionate about awareness and screening. Michell lost her dad to colon cancer in June 2008 and attended her first Call-on Congress in March 2009 with her sisters. After that experience, her family started their own nonprofit organization, Steve Baker Colon Cancer Alliance (SBCCA), to focus on awareness and prevention of CRC in Oregon. Michell led the organization as the Executive Director. She has attended every Call-on Congress since 2009, served on the Grassroots Action Committee (GAC) and represented Fight CRC at several meetings and advocacy events across the country. She and the SBCCA took One Million Strong coast-to-coast in 2014 as she hosted the event in her hometown of Portland, Oregon.
Michell resides in Orange County, California.
