Meet our Members


  Michelle M. Cook

1. Who are/were your role models for "giving back" to your community and how did they influence you?
My parents were outstanding role models. They were leaders in our community and instilled in each of their children the importance of civic engagement. My brother, sisters and I were involved in community activities from an early age.

2. What issues impacting women & girls are you most passionate about? Do you have any personal connection to any of these issues?
There are two issues at the top of my list. The first is self esteem. I encounter women and girls all the time who find their identity in someone else because they do not see their own personal value. The second issue is health related. We must do more to help women take charge of their health.

3. What would you tell other women and girls about The Women's Fund to encourage them to get involved?
An investment in The Women's Fund yields great dividends. Together our members are supporting organizations that are making many positive long-term changes that will affect women and girls in our commmunity now and in the future. Another added benefit of membership in the Women's Fund is the networking--our members have an opportunity to be involved on committees, at the board level and to participate in all of the Fund's events.

4. Tell us a little bit about yourself:
In my personal time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I am also a member of a community outreach board at our church.
