The Women of the Year Award recognizes women who've made an impact in largely male-dominated industries including government, education, healthcare, nonprofits, and technology. 2022 winners are honored for their vision: their ability to see a path forward where others might not and forging new opportunities for women in the workforce.

"This award means so much to me and I am honored to be recognized alongside all these amazing women," says Michelle. "The at-risk students in our community are full of grit and character, and it's an honor to support and nourish them as they navigate their challenges and tackle their hardships. Utah truly is a giving community and I'm humbled daily by the generous donors, selfless volunteers, and amazing school staff who we rely on to make this program work. I am so grateful to make an impact and help other women along the way."

Michelle has a lifelong passion for helping others. And when the USANA Foundation acquired Kids Eat in December of 2019, she was welcomed with open arms. 

"With Michelle guiding USANA Kids Eat, we knew she would magnify this program to continue to make a huge difference in the lives of kids in Utah," says Brian Paul, president of the USANA Foundation. "We are so lucky to have Michelle on our team. I can't think of anyone more deserving of this award."
