Michelle D. Smith


The world of incarceration is big, overwhelming, and is a process.  Michelle was thrust into it unexpectedly and is learning day by day.  Her goal is to share experiences and information to make this process a bit easier for you.  She is a supporter, encourager, comforter, advisor, and giver to people in times of crisis and is dedicated to serving families in need of hope and committed to seeing families healed and restored during and after the incarceration of a loved one.  She is a mother, and “Mimi” to 3 beautiful granddaughters.  She has over 25 years experience in the legal field and currently works as a Sr. Legal Executive Assistant and is an Ohio State Bar Association Certified Paralegal.  She dreams of traveling to different countries, loves beaches, music, and art.

My story:
It began when I got down on my knees and cried out to God from a place of utter despair.
