Michelle has been a part of the SAS family since Shannon opened her doors in 2006. We’d call her a veteran, but the word doesn’t do justice to her youthful and energetic spirit. We consider her a mama bear at the salon. She enjoys the versatility within her job and being able to mix things up. She likes the variety of doing so many different things: from manicures to pedicures, acrylic to gel nails.
She and her husband (they’re high school sweethearts! Go ahead and swoon on that) are empty-nesters! She’s a mom of three children and an oma -that’s German for grandma. Talking about her grandkids leaves her glowing.
As a family, a lot of time is spent outdoors: in their yard, at their cabin four-wheeling, in their pool, or on their boat. They just have to be outdoors, embracing time together as a family and in the sunshine.
They are passionate about entertaining, throwing parties, and socializing with friends. Michelle loves sweets and chips, and salsa. If you haven’t noticed, being a mom (in her real life or salon life) doesn’t stop her from having a good time. If you need proof, her guilty pleasure is a dirty martini and three olives.
She’s taken several master’s classes in acrylic and gel techniques with OPI and Creative Nail Design, and she embraces learning and growing with the younger nail techs she’s surrounded by each day. We’ve warned you. She’s a force.
