Born and raised primarily in Nebraska, Michaela attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas where she earned a Bachelor’s of Business Administration majoring in both Accounting and Finance. Her favorite career and one of her greatest blessings has been the privilege of being a stay-at-home mom to her five beautiful children.
Michaela has always had a passion for humanitarian work. She and her husband, David Shirley, have worked throughout their marriage toward the goal of being able to help people in need throughout the world and feel blessed to see that goal come to fruition.
Michaela has served in various callings within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints including Relief Society, Young Women and Primary presidencies as well as in the Stake Primary presidency. She has served twice as the Young Women’s President and her favorite calling to date has been that of an Early-Morning Seminary Teacher.
