Michelle Stewart was born in San Diego, California but has spent most of her adult life in New York (when not on military assignments). She earned a Bachelor’s in Psychology from Long Island University. She is married with two adult sons, and has also raised her sister’s children after her sister fought and lost a long battle with Huntington’s disease at the age of 40.

Michelle served in the Army for more than twenty-five years as a medic. She ran the operation room, treatment clinics, and the medical readiness area. She also oversaw medic training and operations for deploying soldiers. Michelle was stationed overseas in Korea and was also deployed to Kuwait, where she was in two vehicle accidents. Those accidents caused her to suffer back, neck, and traumatic brain injuries. She recently retired as a Sergeant First Class.

Michelle’s plan after completing the Dog Tag Fellowship is to own her own restaurant and grow her independent record label. She wants to learn successful marketing techniques, great networking skills, grant writing, and much more from this opportunity. Her favorite dessert is banana nut bread.
