Staff & Board Members


Michelle McLaughlin, Executive Director

Michelle joined Love INC in July of 2017. She comes from a church background where she worked at Beaverton Foursquare Church in Missions and Local Missions.  That is where she first learned about Love INC and fell in love with it’s mission in bringing churches and other nonprofits together to help meet people’s needs.  As a Pastor I saw a need for churches to partner together to serve the community as we can do more together than we can apart.    Michelle has 2 beautiful children, Chase (18) and Hannah (16).  Michelle believes her mission field is right where she is planted and she is heavily involved in serving her community.
