Michelle Primley Benton is positively a woman to celebrate. I consider myself fortunate to have had Michelle as my supervisor for the past two years. Michelle is an encouraging, understanding and knowledgeable administrator. Michelle has been extremely supportive in helping me to create a professional development plan and has provided valuable suggestions and opportunities to develop and expand my skills and deepen my knowledge of Student Affairs. Michelle’s passion and care is evident in all her work, but is most clearly expressed in her dedication to the Count Me In Committee and her partnership with FIUTS. Michelle is an ally committed to developing informed leaders and inclusive communities. The University of Washington benefits from Michelle’s wisdom, knowledge, and experience working with International and underrepresented students. Michelle is an all-around lovely person. Outside of work, Michelle enjoys running, reading and travel and has provided me with several stellar suggestions for books, races, and vacation destinations in the PNW. I am honored to call Michelle a mentor and role model.
