Currently, Michelle is a popular Keynote speaker and has had the opportunity to speak about what life is like living with Autism and also works as an instructional paraprofessional at a public school in New Jersey. In her free time, Michelle creates posts and entries on her inspiring blog, “Exceptional Shell,” and regularly interviews and features guests on her blog to discuss issues and feelings that surround the Autism community.
