Meet Our Students
Michelle Turner grew up just outside of Kansas City in Overland Park, KS. She lived in Texas for 3 years while at Baylor University, then graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies. She studied abroad in London, where she became an Anglophile. After college, Michelle briefly worked at Northwestern Mutual as a financial representative before spending a few years at Associated Wholesale Grocers, the second-largest co-op wholesaler in the nation, as the Senior Marketing Coordinator. She helped independent retailers better connect with customers through digital marketing, community outreach, in-store nutrition programs, and more.
Michelle is an avid water-skier and spends many weekends at Lake of the Ozarks. She loves exploring Kansas City and has a huge passion for traveling, so she very much enjoyed the Global Immersion capstone course in Europe. Michelle now works as an Account Manager for Service Management Group, a global leader in customer experience measurement.
