Airman & Family Readiness Program Director
Michelle Abarca
Office: 720-847-9116



Hello! My name is Michelle Abarca and I am the spouse of a retired Air National Guard Service Member. Before becoming the Airman and Family Readiness Program Manager for the 140th Air National Guard, I spent 2 years supporting our Air Guard members as the Yellow Ribbon Specialist, and 1 ½ years as a Key Volunteer. Prior to working with the Air Guard families, I spent 4 years working with the Army National Guard as a Family Assistant Specialist. I am very well versed in the stressors that can come to a family when a loved one is deployed. My goal is to provide all of our families with the tools and resources needed to feel prepared for deployments as well as day to day interaction with the military.
