She taught ESL in the Los Angeles Unified School District and directed a "loop group" providing background chatter for film and TV.

Since co-founding MOVI, Michele has led the campaigns to pass the MOVI sponsored Overturn Citizens United Act twice (!) through the California Legislature, and she chaired the successful 2016 Yes on 59, The Overturn Citizens United Act, California ballot measure campaign, where California voters passed Proposition 59, instructing their California lawmakers to "use all of their constitutional authority" to overturn Citizen United v. FEC.
