Michelle entered the financial services industry in 2001 at JPMorgan Chase in Austin, Texas, where she rose to a leadership position and helped hundreds of financial advisors, managers and licensed bankers further their financial services education. Frustrated with the limited options available to retirees, Michelle was inspired to focus on every aspect of financial planning so she could act in the best interest of her clients. She started NorthStar Wealth Management in 2015. 

As an Investment Adviser Representative, Michelle lives by the mantra “Plan, Preserve and Protect,” and believes everyone deserves to have someone committed to honesty and integrity in their corner.

Michelle is licensed to sell insurance products and securities, and she is pursuing a business marketing degree from Western Governor’s University. 

Born in Dallas and raised in Southern California, Michelle now lives in Fulshear, Texas, near Houston. She is a wife and proud mother of two adult daughters, Alainna and Sarah.
