Michelle debated for Little Rock Central in Arkansas and was the first person from her state to qualify to the Tournament of Champions in LD (and reach elimination rounds). She championed Isidore Newman, won multiple state championships and has consistently made it to late elimination rounds at national tournaments such as the Glenbrooks Invitational (Semis), Cal Berkeley, JW Patterson (Semis), Heart of Texas, Greenhill, Cal Berkeley, and etc. Michelle's primarily interested in teaching all forms of kritikal argumentation, ranging from postmodern theory (D&G, Bataille, Baudrillard) to applications of Moten and Harney. Outside of debate, she is a licensed yoga instructor, plays guitar and likes going for long drives.
