While enjoying a rewarding career as a government case worker in Canton, Ohio and as her children were starting out in their adult lives, Michele began classes at the local college. In 1998, she became a licensed Real Estate Sales Associate and REALTOR®. She soon learned her career choices were very similar in that both assist families and address their needs, desires and long-term goals.
After many trips to Florida, Michele decided to embark on a permanent vacation and moved from Canton to Venice in 2001 and permanently settled in North Port in 2004. Michele believes real estate requires constant education. She continually attends classes and is licensed as a Florida Real Estate Broker and Notary Public and has earned the following certifications: GRI (Graduation, Realtor Institute), ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative), CSP (Certified New Home Professional), SFR (Certified Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource). She still maintains her sales associate license in Ohio.
Michele has two children, Nicole and Christopher, and four grand-daughters, Samantha, Peyton, Sienna and Rylee. In her downtime, Michele enjoys spending time at the beach, traveling, baking, sewing, spending time with family and her beloved Rottweiler-Jag. Michele is avid supporter of the Humane Society, St. Jude’s and volunteers for Meals on Wheels.
