“I have always had a soft spot for people facing unfortunate circumstances in their lives. We just never know when life might throw any of us a curveball and we could find ourselves in a less than desirable situation. I always strive to be a light, no matter how small, in someone’s time of darkness.”

Michele is the property manager for Fairmont Community Development Partnership. She enjoys the opportunity “to be part of the solution, to provide answers to challenges and to give hope to those in despair.” Previously, Michele has worked for Keller Williams as a Listing Manager and for Century21 as an Agent Support Manager. She has been involved in real estate since 2017 with both large and small firms. She is experienced in researching properties, real estate contracts, real estate listings, and more.  

Michele was born in Harrison County and raised in Upshur County. Michele had lived in Virginia for the last 10 years. When she recently returned back home to the Wild and Wonderful WV, she found herself traveling to Fairmont after accepting a position with Fairmont Community Development Partnership. She likes the small-town feel of Fairmont as well as the community support for improvement and advancement.

In her spare time, she enjoys exploring the outdoors whether it is hiking at a state park or even a leisurely drive on a back road with no real destination in mind.  “Natural beauty, fresh air, and sunshine are good for the soul!”
