Michelle was one of the original Motorolans to learn about SPC in the early '80s, prior to the invention of the Belt System. As an Operations Manager using these lean and six sigma tools with her teams and her suppliers, she was able to make significant cost savings and leadtime improvements in a variety of industries from manufacturing semiconductor capital equipment to DSL service delivery. She is re-entering the workforce after a break to raise her family and change the world by leading and improving election integrity efforts in California. Going back to her roots, Michelle is working on gaining her certifications to qualify for roles in improvement efforts. She currently holds a SB and SM from MIT in Materials Science and Engineering and an MBA from the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business.
