|Michele's relationship with Association Technologies started long before she worked here. In 2002, Michele began working with CSI, an iMIS reseller who partnered with AT for their networking needs. Thru CSI she met the owners of AT, Bryan and Mark, and developed a great respect for them. After a long career at CSI, she started her own consulting firm and contracted with both AT and ASI for two years prior to joining the AT family full-time in July 2016. Before jumping into the technology field, Michele taught 5th grade for five years, which explains her passion and proficiency for training others. Her role at AT is her favorite job because it's everything she likes to do wrapped up in one. She really enjoys accounting and technology and has always found ways to bring technology into her life. Outside of work, Michele loves hanging out with her family. She has been married to Ron for 36 years and they enjoy family time, hiking or hanging out in the backyard having singalongs with their two kids, Zack (35) and Alex (33). The family loves to vacation together and recently traveled to Hawaii. They also like to go biking and have done bike and brewery or bike and wine tours locally and in Napa.
And now a few questions to get to know a little more about Michele:

Favorite place she has traveled to:
Italy, she has been a few times and the Amalfi Coast is her favorite. The people are so nice and the fresh fish is wonderful.
