Michele is an innovative and results driven leader with a long record of strategic and financial success. Michele spent the majority of her career in general management, marketing and sales for the dental professional sector of Oral-B, Gillette and Procter and Gamble. Delivering financials, building brand shares and long-term stakeholder value, she most enjoyed representing organizational interests with customers, distributors, vendors, associations and key opinion leaders. Prior to retiring from dentistry, her contributions to the profession were recognized by the Canadian Dental Association by awarding her the prestigious Special Friend to Dentistry.
In 2014, Michele was diagnosed with melanoma in-situ, Stage 0; and in late 2016 a local recurrence resulted in a malignant melanoma Stage 3C diagnosis. An introduction to Annette Cyr and MNC, helped her navigate her way to eventually participate in an immunotherapy clinical trial at PMH. It’s now over 3 years and Michele continues to be cancer-free and well. She became involved with MNC as a Peer Support volunteer in 2018; and since 2017 she and her husband Bob participate on her oncologist’s Melanoma Busters team for PMH; and began fielding the “Bochele” team, fundraising each year in Strides for Melanoma Awareness.
Michele is an avid golfer, sometime artist and loves to travel, garden, cook and entertain.
