Michele was born and raised in Austin, Texas. She graduated with an education degree in Lubbock before realizing that was not her calling. She moved to Omaha in 2016 and attended Iowa Western Community College to pursue her true calling in dental hygiene. Michele joined the Quality Dental Care team in the fall of 2020. One of her goals as a hygienist is to help improve the oral health of everyone in her chair and make their experience at the dental office a pleasant one and not one to dread.
Michele enjoys spending time with the people she loves most, so you can always find her with family and friends doing something or nothing – she just enjoys the time. She is a very proud Texan, so conversations with her may (will) involve Texas – she can’t help it.
