Michelle Lynn Niehaus Ogborne is Born and raised in a small town in rural southern Indiana, Michelle was a strong willed child with a deep love of learning. This was transformed when a personal tragedy struck – a close friend committed suicide because he felt powerless to change his situation.
The loss of her friend filled Michelle with sadness and a feeling that there were many things inherently unfair in the world. She felt that she needed to do something about it.
As a result of this commitment, Michelle became a leader within her community at a young age, focusing her efforts on volunteer work and being a champion for those in her life who didn’t feel that they had a voice to make things better.
This passion for helping others continued through high school and again when she pursued her Bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York at Fredonia.
