Rent-A-Center Joins Forces with "Military Makeover with Montel"

Coming Together to Help

“Military Makeover With Montel” is a series that offers a helping hand to military families and their loved ones.

We are honored to work alongside Montel to provide these families with premium appliances and furniture to help families have a new beginning in a renovated home.

We are proud to offer career opportunities to many military veterans after their time in service and proud to be able to lend an extra hand with the Military Makeover program.

Meet Our Military Veteran Michelle Dingee

Military Makeover show host, Montel Williams, with Veteran Michelle Dingee.

Michelle Dingee was born in Miami, Florida, into a family with a rich history of military service. She decided to enlist in the military in October of 2000 after training as a medic at an air force base in Mississippi. Her skills and expertise were in high demand, leading to multiple deployments in Germany, Turkey, and the U.K. During her 14-year career, Michelle served as an Expeditionary Medic in Ambulance Services, Intensive Care and Surgical Units, where she witnessed the horrors of war firsthand while helping save the lives of wounded soldiers.

After her extensive tours, she recognized that the toll that her career had on her mental health and well-being. Due to experiencing PTSD, depression, and anxiety, Michelle decided to become a paralegal nurse on 100% honorable discharge. She now resides in Hollywood, Florida.

Throughout her varied military career, she has proven to be a highly adept leader and selfless caregiver. Rent-A-Center is honored to partner with Military Makeover to offer a token of appreciation for her services by providing a memorable home renovation for Michelle.
