About Michelle

Welcome and Hello! I am so happy you’re here, visiting my little corner of the interwebs! My name is Michelle, and I’m the blogger behind Pocketful of Chelles. One thing you should know about me is that I wear multiple hats in my life (I’m sure you can relate!). I am a wife, a mom, a daughter & sister, a people champion, a talent developer, and even a matchmaker. I honestly get to work with some amazing people… Employees! With a successful career in Human Resources (HR), I’ve emerged as an innovative thinker – a true collaborative, strategic HR leader. I’ve always had a passion for working with people – we’re such fascinating creatures, don’t you think?

I married my high school sweetheart, and together we have a handsome, energetic little boy (and a fur baby too). My philosophy about life is pretty simple – Live well. Laugh often. Love much. I love a great outdoor adventure, side-kicking it in the kitchen with the one and only BBQ Ninja, and rocking this super-mom gig that I’ve been blessed with!

About the Blog

I am a people-person with a purpose! I believe we all have a story to tell, which is why I started this blog. I want to invite you to be brave and tell your own story. Let me ask you, have you ever walked on the beach just to pick up seashells? They come in all different shapes and sizes. They are different colors. Each one is unique. Before you know it, you’ve picked up a pocketful of “chelles. The same is true about life. My life. Here, you will find stories from career advice to awesome adventures (and everything in between), that will have you inspired to pick up a Pocketful of Chelles of your own. In life, there is no road less traveled, just endless opportunities to grow, learn, and dream.

As Dolly Parton once said, “Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life”. This is so very true! There is more to life than the nine-to-five grind. I hope this will be a place for you to feel encouraged, be refreshed, and practice gratitude.

Life doesn’t have to be boring. It’s an adventure, a journey, an open road of discovery.

If you’re with me, I’d love to connect with you. The best way to keep up with my adventures is to follow this blog. Just add your email address, and click follow, it’s that simple. For career advice and more, feel free to connect with me on Twitter and LinkedIn. To see slices of my life, just follow Pocketful of Chelles on Instagram.
