On The Edge Interview with Inspirational Speaker and Comedian Michelle Collins

May 15, 2019

Michele’s comedy resume includes big names in comedy

including Jeanne Robertson’s Comedy with Class, Ellen

DeGeneres Comedy Contest winner, Dean Lewis, and

professional comedian Jamie Campbell of Second City as

well as improv classes at Beta Theatre. She has appeared

in a comedy show with Andy Huggins, local Houston

Comedian and most recent America's Got Talent Finalist.


At 17, Michele Collins had already faced challenges that

many of us never do: trauma, abuse, teen pregnancy,

and homelessness. She also knew it was up to her to

overcome these challenges.

She changed her course and become a high-performing

sales executive for over 20 years, achieving record-

breaking sales numbers at multiple corporations.

Then, she endured the tragic and sudden loss of her

husband to addiction. It was at that point that she

asked the hardest question of all; Why am I so


Despite the successful career, nice home, and a

supportive network of people, she then realized her

answer: So I can help other people see that they can

experience tragedy and still live an incredible life.
