Principal Consultants

Michelle is an Educational and Therapeutic Consultant with RNG International Educational Consultants LLC™. With a background as a school psychologist, she understands the intersection of academic and social-emotional life for students. She consults on a range of placements, including traditional boarding schools, therapeutic programs, and young adult transition options.

Michelle served as a school psychologist in public and charter schools in New York City and Denver, Colorado. She is a member of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) and maintains her NCSP (Nationally Certified School Psychologist) credential. She is a professional member of IECA and an individual member of NATSAP. She earned her Masters of Education in School Psychology at Teachers College Columbia University and a Bachelor’s in History from the College of William and Mary. She is a graduate of The Madeira School, a boarding school outside Washington, DC.

Michelle served as the national therapeutic chair for IECA, periodically writes for IECA’s newsletter “Insights,” and presents regularly at professional conferences.

Michelle recently made the move from Denver to Los Angeles. She enjoys working with local and US-based students, as well as young global nomads like herself. Having grown up for many years overseas, she experienced firsthand the challenges and rewards of being a Third Culture Kid. She offers a professional lens through which to understand the impact of global mobility on children and youth.

Now in West Hollywood, she enjoys exploring local restaurants and trails, cycling, cooking, and dreaming up her next travel adventure.

I believe every child can learn and can thrive. I am passionate about education, mental health, and the role of educational consultants.
