Originally from Long Island, New York, Michelle has been in Tallahassee since coming to Florida State University in 1989.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business – Hospitality Administration and learned the value of customer service from one of the nation’s top schools in that field.
Her first job after graduation was at the Tallahassee Area Convention and Visitors Bureau in helping to promote Tallahassee’s attractions and events to visitors as well as residents. It was that experience that really infused Michelle’s love of the city, with its small-town charm and canopied roads.
Michelle is the broker of Joe Manausa Real Estate and she helps clients buy and sell homes too.
Michelle is thrilled to call Tallahassee home with her husband Joe and three children, Sami, Max, and Joey.
