Michelle is the Ops Boss® for J. Harmon Home Team, a team with over $20 million in annual sales. A self-confessed, task-focused Type-A, Michelle prides herself on maintaining calm amid the chaos, to help her team's clients achieve their dreams of home ownership. Her strong command of technology has allowed her to learn proprietary software to help the team become more efficient and successful in their business.

Michelle’s colorful and curious personality and her love of music, books, and all things entertainment led her to develop Rebel Sage Perspectives, a funny, rebellious, and light-hearted podcast discussing life, movies, and music. Her guests have included musicians, actors, stunt people, authors, as well as a special effects team. Her target market is, as she says, “anyone who listens to music or watches TV.” Her podcast blossomed from a gem of an idea to an internationally heard show in a matter of months via grass-roots marketing. Rebel Sage Perspectives debuted in 2020 and is heard in 30 countries.

Michelle’s skill at conversation and genuine desire to know people’s stories have served her well throughout her career, including in her interactions with her team’s real estate clients, her podcast guests, and the people she has met as a Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce Diplomat in 2023. She is looking forward to her 2024 Diplomat activities.

Michelle earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Communication from Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri. In her downtime, she enjoys listening to music of all genres, reading, and trying new recipes. Ask her about her award-winning pecan pie!
