After Michelle’s honorable military service in 2014, she moved to Iowa with her husband after accepting a position with the Iowa State Patrol. Michelle received the Distinguished Graduate Award from Iowa Department of Public Safety’s 38th Basic Academy in November 2014, for exemplifying the core values of integrity, fairness, respect, honesty, courage and compassion. She also exceeded the previous Academy female sit-up record, at 144 sit-ups in 2 minutes.

In April 2017, Michelle was selected for the Commissioner’s Special Award for Excellence in Traffic Safety; for outstanding service to the cause of reducing injuries and loss of life in traffic crashes in Iowa. Beginning in May 2017, Michelle was a Drill Instructor for the 40th Basic Academy, dedicating 5 months to training recruits to become basically trained officers who are able to operate under extremely stressful conditions.

Michelle aids in recruiting for the Department. She is one of only 16 female Troopers in the Iowa State Patrol. Her military experience and skills coupled with her dedication to service enables her to be a continuously driven and sedulous law enforcement officer.
