Michele W, President/Founder
Michele started studying multiple types of religions by age 12, after noticing her Catholic grandmother had beliefs beyond what the church taught. Many years later she learned her family had roots in Stregheria, Free Masonry and Irish witchcraft. Michele has been fortunate to have studied among various spiritual paths and practices due to the broad range contacts throughout the country, including Voodou, Hoodou, Egyptian, Irish, and Ceremonial magick. Taking a piece of each teaching along the way, she has been a practicing Witch for over 30 years. Recently, Michele embarked on an Elemental Journey of self-exploration. Her experiences led her to a path which branched off with a choice between returning to Solitary practice or a much more complicated path, building a unified community and knowledge. While the first path would have been must easier, she chose the 2nd and together, with the other founding members and Directors, the West Central Florida Pagan Alliance was born.
