Michelle Ranes, Information Technology Specialist
Michelle Ranes serves as an Information Technology Specialist with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and is responsible for the creative development and maintenance of numerous VA websites including the Secretary’s Center for Strategic Partnerships. Michelle celebrated her 41-year civil service anniversary with VA in October 2020. She started her career as a volunteer at the Little Rock, AR, VA Medical Center at the age of 15.
Michelle was raised in a family of military service members and VA employees who knew the importance of honoring those who have borne the battle. Throughout her career, she has worked at seven medical centers across the country in the fields of clerical support, timekeeping, inventory management, purchasing, contracting, acquisition policy, acquisition training, eCommerce, and information technology. She credits her work ethic and passion to her Mother (Shirley) who was a trailblazer in VA and taught her the value of hard work.
