About Michelle Little
Michelle Little and her family arrived in The Woodlands from California in 2011, as part of the Waste Connections corporate relocation. After a couple of years in their new home, Michelle and Jim welcomed daughter, Melba. With other family members making the move to this area, Michelle is never at a loss for babysitters and always has a great group with her enjoying all that The Woodlands area has to offer.
For most of her 14 years with Waste Connections, Michelle worked in an Accounting position. In 2019, she transitioned into an Executive Director of Engagement position, focusing on Waste Connections’ involvement with their employees, as well as the communities they serve, and most recently the Company’s social media presence. Since 2015, she has chaired the Waste Connections Golf Classic for Kids, a tournament that has raised over $6 million in support of children’s charities in California, Texas and beyond. Her work with Interfaith has shown her first-hand how these funds benefit the Child Development Center, Kits 4 Kidz program, food pantry and crisis assistance, giving families much needed help during a time they need it most.
Michelle is involved with many organizations throughout South Montgomery County, holding board positions with Inspiration Ranch and Angel Reach, while also actively involved with St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School’s Advisory Board and her daughter’s Girl Scout Troop. Becoming a mother has heightened her awareness of children in need and has driven her to give so much of her time to numerous causes throughout the area. Watching Melba and her friends achieve confidence and discover sisterhood has been one of her most rewarding experiences.
