Michele Duhon-Fields


Michele Fields is a wife, mother, and grandmother.  Michele’s professional background is in human resources management, social services, business management, and office administration.  Educationally, Michele has a Bachelor of Science degree in business marketing from the University of West Florida.

Michele realizes that there are many variables determining one’s likelihood for success, from intelligence, to physical health, to good looks, to parents’ economic status, to connections, mental health, to race, to gender, to geographical area, to factors of upbringing, to the quality and motivations of our mentors, etc.  

Many members of our society did not begin with or do not currently have positive and nurturing variables required for life success.  

The reason that Michele is involved with the Thou Art My Sister Ministry:  A wish to support, in any way she can, the thoughtful and loving outreach to those among us who need those positive variables and nurturing.  She has witnessed how love and support can heal broken souls and bodies; therefore, she believes we all should contribute our gifts to help our sisters lessen their burdens and realize their potential.
