Upon graduation from high school, Micki attended Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, where she earned a B.S. in Medical Technology. Her first job was as the head of the Hematology Research Laboratory at The University of Chicago. Following the birth of her six children, Adam, Joshua, Jeremy, Seth, Rachel and Elizabeth, Micki chose to be a full-time Mom, a decision she will never regret.
Micki’s professional career shifted when she joined the staff of The WWGroup, Inc. It is there that she found her niche and passion for motivating others to success. During her years as Director of Training and Development, Micki’s curiosity about training adults led her to Malcomb Knowles Adult Learning Theory, and eventually to graduate school.
At age 50, Micki returned to academia, something she vowed she would never do. In 1996, she earned a Master’s Degree in Adult Education from The University of Michigan. She entered Fielding’s HOD Program in March 1998.
Micki holds a Master’s Degree in Organizational Systems from Fielding, and is a graduate of the first cohort of Fielding’s Master’s Level Evidence Based Coaching Program. She is a P.C.C. (Professional Certified Coach) member of the International Coach Federation. Micki’s Ph.D. is in Human Development.
