Speakers

Michelle Nietert

Michelle Nietert has been walking beside people providing Solutions for Life and presenting for groups as small as 30 and as large as 1000 for over 20 years professionally. She’s also a licensed professional counselor leading a team of over 15 counselors as the Clinical Director and Founder of Community Counseling Associates.

Michelle is the mom of two school-aged children and believes that parenting is one of her highest current callings.  She is passionate about discipling them as well as equipping them to not only be successful in their endeavors but to also become great people of character who love God.  She has been married to her husband Drew for almost two decades. Drew is a healthcare consultant who travels often.  She, like most women today, struggles with juggling family priorities, work, and making her own spiritual growth, mental well-being, and physical fitness a priority.  She is currently an active member in her local church previously serving on the Sunday School leadership team, leading small group women’s Bible studies, encouraging the local church as a lay speaker, and signing with the church praise team when in town.

People are her passion. Some of her favorite life moments have been interacting and praying with people one on one from across the country. Her favorite quote not in the Bible is from Katherine Graham who said, “To love what you do and feel it matters, what could be more fun?”

Brooke Robertson

Brooke Robertson has redemption stories to tell, and with her Burtonwood Records debut album Taking My Voice Back, she’s sharing them with the world. This small town-raised Louisiana girl joins pop sensibilities and country soulfulness together with her pure vocal tone and heartfelt lyrics, crafting songs centered on the ways God’s redemption weaves its way through all our life experiences– both heartache and hope.

Brooke’s captivating musical storytelling results in tracks like the title cut “Taking My Voice Back,” a song centered on Brooke’s personal story of forgiveness healing the wounds of sexual abuse from her childhood. Other highlights from the 11 track debut, include the song of surrender “Why Are You Waiting,” which features Jason Roy (Building 429). “Purpose for the Pain” stands out as Brooke’s thank you to her mom, who endured health complications that threatened both of their lives during pregnancy and the resulting lifelong effects. Allowing Brooke to be here to tell the stories she’s singing today….. Taking My Voice Back was produced by Jeremy Holderfield (Seventh Day Slumber) and is available everywhere right now.
