Miss Cape May County

2018 Michelle Wanner

Michelle Wanner is a sophomore at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She currently studies Actuarial Science and has a goal to work in financial consultation. Alongside her passion for math and finance, Michelle has always enjoyed performing on stage. She has danced since she was 5 years old and continues to practice the craft today. Besides dance, she is an avid yogi and runner.

As a titleholder for the Miss America Organization, Michelle advocates for her platform, Puppies with Professions, which works to bring awareness and raise funds for service dog organizations. Michelle first gained interest for service dogs when she became a volunteer and subsequently a puppy raiser for the Seeing Eye Organization. She raised a German Shepherd puppy, Paris, for 15 months by training her basic commands and exposing her to many social situations in the public. This experience inspired Michelle to commence her platform, so that she could inform the public about service dogs: how they are trained, what services can they provide, and what costs go into their training.
