Michele graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1992 and began her career at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center where she specialized in orthopedic nursing. In 1998, she moved to California and began her journey in the medical sales arena of Dermatology and Aesthetics.
Michele describes herself as an artist, an educator, and a perfectionist. She combines her knowledge of aesthetics products with her creative passion for natural beauty, seeing each face as its own palette and never adhering to a cookie-cutter approach. Every person is unique with their own individual anatomy and musculature, and it’s important to Michele to customize a plan that is specific to each patient. So, she is very simpatico with RRA’s philosophy.
When Michele moved from Pittsburgh to sunny California, she got a job with Medicis Pharmaceutical Corporation, the company that distributes Restylane, Perlane, and Dysport. As part of her job, she taught the proper injection techniques to medical staff. She enjoyed the work so much that she returned to her first love – a clinical setting where she could help patients look their best.
Michele is a perfectionist in both her career and her personal life. She loves to spend time in nature, especially while traveling or camping with family and friends. She’s very active, whether working out at the gym, hiking, taking yoga and Zumba classes, or playing sports with her fourteen year-old son, Shane. Michele is also front and center at Shane’s school, including serving as a volunteer room parent.
