Michelle Polster – Senior Course Developermichelle_polster_face-frame

Michelle Polster is a student at Colorado State University majoring in organizational leadership. She is an excellent example of adults bringing their constructivist knowledge from the working world and into the training room. Michelle worked in the restaurant industry for 10 years when she decided it was time for her to go back to school. She is completing her degree and, coupling that with her work experience, pursuing a career in helping youth make healthier lifestyle decisions through healthy activities and education. Michelle is committed to families and youth as this nation’s future and she believes they should be given the tools necessary to make sure they can succeed among the challenges faced today. The lessons she helped develop all speak to her dedication to supporting the training of public safety personnel in these very volatile issues as her way of contributing to the safety of the communities she hopes to serve.
