Michelle Champine is new to the Paralegal field having earned her Paralegal Certificate from the University of San Diego in December of 2015. She spent the previous ten years as the Operations Manager for a local-based International Foundation and prior to that, working for the San Diego Padres Baseball Club as the Retail Operations Manager. Although she experienced tremendous fulfillment in both, she felt as if she still didn’t know what she wanted to be when she “grew up”. She always had a passion for the law and after attending a presentation for those interested in learning about becoming a Paralegal, she knew that is what she truly wanted. Fast-forward one year later and she is now a full-time Paralegal for Ryan Carvalho & White LLP in Mission Valley and enjoying every single minute! Michelle’s goals for the next year include becoming a NALA Certified Paralegal, while continuing to explore all learning opportunities that come her way.
