Michelle has always been passionate about languages. While earning her undergraduate degree in French, she lived in Paris for three years and in Rome for a year. Upon returning to the United States, Michelle got her start in the translation industry on the client side of the business. She worked for several medical manufacturers as a translation project manager, handling projects in 20+ languages. As a project manager on the client side, Michelle purchased translations from a number of translation service providers and quickly learned the value of quality service from a translation vendor (Argo Translation being one of them). She always said if she left the client side of the industry to work on the vendor side, she wanted to work at a place like Argo. Michelle ultimately went back to school to earn a graduate degree in linguistics from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. When the offer was made, she willingly moved to Chicago to join Argo Translation in 2005. Michelle says that one of the great things about working at Argo is the intimate and relaxed office culture. In her spare time, Michelle can be found on the social dance floor, swaying Argentine Tango, Zydeco, and everything in between.
