Before heading back to the agency world, Michele spent five years in financial services marketing working
with Wealth Management, Mutual Funds, Hedge Funds, and Insurance firms. Michele was Chief Operating Officer of Moody Communications, a Marketing and PR firm that specialized in entertainment, fashion, beauty and e-commerce; she oversaw the company’s growth and client account management. Michele has also worked with national brands like PBS’s Word World, FAO Schwartz, Jones New York, Verizon and US Banker, as well as for licensees of Disney, Warner Brothers, Lucas Films, Barbie, and South Park.
After growing up in a family of entrepreneurs, Michele began her career with Starbucks and Barnes and Noble, where she made considerable and notable contributions in both. She was responsible for all aspects of opening 25 Starbucks stores (profitable mind you!), and the launch of the B&N “superstore”
A New Yorker at heart and a self-described health nut, Michele enjoys organic cooking and spending time with her family.
