Michelle is a Microsoft 365 Consultant that has adopted and embraced the Power Platform. Michelle indicated one her features of the Power Platform is gives her great integrations opportunities and possibilities between Microsoft 365 and Power Platform.

The last two years she has focused on Power Automate and Power Apps and likes to explore different solutions the platform enables. Michelle can often be found contributing to the Power Platform online community, participates in Power Apps and Power Automate User Groups, and speak at conferences and Meetup meetings whenever possible.

The inspiration for this entry is her Son: he is a huge fan of Pokémons! He has been collecting Pokémon cards since he was 4 years old (he is now 12) and loves playing Pokémon Go.  To attract her son into Power Apps, she has been building different Pokémon games. Michelle has created three games: Pokemon memory, Pokemon noughts and crosses with Pokemon3D being her third game.  Additionally, Michelle joined the PowerApps4Kids where she is one of the leaders of P4K. Michelle has found her Children have been learning Power Apps by making it fun and entertaining!

Sheryl Netley

I’m a late career switcher, having picked up Microsoft Power Platform in the last few years as an enthusiastic 50 something.  I am very active in the Power Platform and Dynamics 365 Community, and regularly participate in events as a speaker, volunteer, and attendee.  Microsoft certifications have been the enabler for a life and career I had only ever dreamed of, and it is my mission to share that opportunity with as many people as I possibly can! It really is #NeverTooLate. Outside of work, I spend my time mostly being a mum of 4, but also volunteer when I can as a STEM Ambassador, mentor and ambassador for the TechStylers group for women in tech. I firmly believe that #WeRiseByLiftingOthers.”
