About Me

With 17 years of experience in TV and Film, Michelle has honed her communication skills and learned to work in pressurised environments.

Michelle completed a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) majoring in Communications and Business Management and has a Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing Management. These qualifications put her in good stead in the corporate world, where she held roles such as Internal Communications and PR Manager and Marketing and Communications Consultant.

After being retrenched in 2020, as lockdown started, she redirected her career and became a consultant.

Michelle has had to reset her career a few times. She has learnt what it takes to keep going and how to bring out the best version of herself while learning and evolving. Her motto in life is that nothing is impossible.
Let’s do the (im)possible together.

    Michelle has been really patient with me. During sessions, she's inspiring me to discover my own weaknesses, root causes, finding actionable resolutions and most importantly reminding me to keep on auditing myself. During this journey, I have raised my confidence on dealing any future obstacles.
