Michelle Powell began at Florida Poly in March of 2015 after moving to Florida from her home state of Illinois. Her role in admissions has grown from serving as an admissions counselor, to associate director, senior associate director and now director of admissions. Prior to working at Florida Poly, Powell worked as a middle and high school mathematics teacher in addition to coaching junior varsity softball and chess. She brings a wealth of experience in instructional media in addition to event planning and management. 
Powell spends her free time exploring Lakeland and the surrounding communities with her husband and son. She loves to crochet and talk all things mathematics.

When asked why she loves working at Florida Poly, Powell stated, “It feels like home. It’s impossible to walk around campus and not know people. I grew up in a small town and enjoy the feeling of knowing my community.”
