Michele Phillips has had a zest for living life full out since she was a child. Inspired by her dad who always had her singing and dancing around the house, Michele unconsciously developed happy habits. She listened to “Happy” music, and was deemed the Queen of Corny. She drew “Happy” pictures and was labeled a dreamer. She said good morning with a smile on her face to most people that she came in contact with and was once told to “take her pom-pom’s and go somewhere else.” She let none of this stop her. Michele is, and has always been dedicated to helping people get more out of their days. Why just get through the day, when you can enjoy the day?
