"Serving District 10 these past ten years has been a privilege. I'm excited to be able to continue and looking forward to working with our new team!"
As Chief of Staff, Michele continues the fantastic work she has done during her ten years of service in Councilmember Khamis’ and Mahan's office. Michele is known across the district for her pragmatic, hands-on approach to improving our community, ranging from organizing the community for volunteer events to bringing people together to plan for disaster response. In fact, across the thousands of doors Matt knocked on during the campaign, Michele’s name came up again and again!
Michele is the third generation in her family to be born in San José. She grew up in Cambrian Park and Willow Glen and has lived in Almaden since 1998. She has a family history of business, entrepreneurship, and community involvement that goes all the way back to her great-grandmother’s three hotel businesses in downtown San José.
Michele co-founded an IT services business in 2002 with her husband Rick and managed operations, while at the same time raising their two sons. Michele is CERT trained, has a ham radio license and makes the best lemon cookies in Almaden!
