Michele has spent the last several decades in the HR space, most recently leading an HR Consulting team with ZumanHR, serving early to growth stage organizations.  Michele has successfully served in a variety of HR leadership roles, and earlier in her career specialized in training and talent acquisition.  Michele has a BS in Business, is SPHR certified, and is pursuing her graduate degree in HR and Organizational Development.  Michele has lived overseas and traveled abroad extensively.  As a result, she loves experiencing new cultures and life experiences.  She’s a wife and mother of three very adventurous kids who keep her on her toes at all times.  When her nose is not buried in her laptop, she can be found laughing with friends, walking in nature, planning her next travel experience, or throwing the frisbee for her two adorable miniature schnauzers, Beau and Daisy Duke.

"Michele is nothing short of an amazing natural leader.  Her emphasis on client satisfaction with integrity, organization, and enthusiasm are the inspiration behind EarlyHR and the reasons I know she is the partner to grow and foster this company with.  As a mentor, these traits have been contributors to my personal and professional development and are consistently reflected in feedback from her clients." --Janel Yessian

"A CEO client partner once described Janel as being on her “A team” and I couldn’t agree more.   She knows her stuff, is incredibly warm, and is truly passionate about giving her clients an A+ experience.   Thankfully, as my partner, she is also a great proofreader and tech-tutor.  I need help every now and then!" - Michele Haugh
