Michelle Erfurt serves as Strong Towns' Event Pathfinder. Guided by a passion for helping people, her first career was in music therapy. She spent her clinical years working to decrease pain, improve coping, and enhance interpersonal relationships of hospice and hospitalized patients.
Those therapeutic skills have served her well. In her work at Strong Towns, Michelle navigates people through the process of bringing a Strong Towns event to their area in a way that helps them achieve their goals to help build a stronger place.
A Strong Towns speaking event is the perfect catalyst to take the hard work of local #StrongCitizen advocates to the next level. And this year, we’re doing more of them than ever before.
In 2018, we presented the Strong Towns message in person to over 8,000 people from diverse backgrounds and professions. We want to keep that number growing. Your membership will make it possible.
The enthusiasm and follow-through of committed Strong Towns members is what makes this movement happen.
With the help of our neighbors (plus YouTube), we're growing our first garden, and learning a lot along the way.
