Welcome to the brains behind this whole operation. Needless to say, the balls are “bouncing” around in Michelle’s head all the time. Michelle began her career in the financial services industry, after graduating magna cum laude from the University of Notre Dame (where she also played volleyball for the Fighting Irish). During her time at Merrill Lynch, Michelle managed over $140 million in assets, growing the practice significantly in a challenging market, while stabilizing revenue from 34 percent to 72 percent recurring.
This experience led her to a job creating the grassroots marketing and business strategies for an Austin-based computer start-up company. Michelle then went onto become the marketing and events head for one of Austin’s best-known retail businesses.
Now, as the founder and CEO of Bounce, Michelle consults on and manages marketing campaigns, public relations strategies, rand development and events for a variety of clients.
