Michelle - Garage Door Specialist

"Hello I'm Michelle. I was born in Kansas and lived next door to my grandparents growing up. I spent my childhood learning the country's beauty and history via my grandparents RV. During my childhood my father's job relocated him to North Carolina. I attended Penny Rd, East Cary Middle, Athens Drive High School, and Wake Tech Community College. I'm a huge animal lover and have two dogs and fish. I enjoy playing board games, hiking, and traveling. I have a wide range of taste in music and movies. One of my favorite quotes is from Lucille Ball: "I would rather regret the things that I have done than the things that I have not". I have been with Garage Door Specialist since 2003 and look forward to helping you!"

I take a lot of pride in my family and in what I do. My family consists of a three year old, two eight year old twins, a boy and a girl and an eleven year old. We spend as much time together as we can playing games, watching television shows, and playing sports. In my spare time I play the guitar and enjoy teaching my oldest to play."
