The award "Recognizes women whose inspirational athletic leadership in sport, fitness, or recreational programs benefits our community," and Michelle does that on many levels.
Not only is she the General Manager of our team, but she is the President of our Board of Directors and helps out with trainer duties on the sidelines. She has been with the Valkyries since the beginning, and was a major factor in women's football being started in Saskatchewan.
When Michelle isn't taking care of her long list of Valkyries duties, you can find her assisting with other football related endeavors in the community such as the RUSH girls flag football league (as both a coach and organizer), acting as a board member or committee member on various initiatives and lots of other things.
