Michelle Berryman

Michelle is a Wisconsin native, but has been in Scottsdale since 2014 and can’t imagine life without the sunshine and mountains. She and her husband have two sweet children, Graham 4 1/2 and Shea 4 months, both precious gifts through adoption. She spent ten years in PR before launching into the daunting, yet exhilarating world of entrepreneurship. Last year she traded in her e-commerce business for a position as a stay-at-home mom. She still freelances as a business and marketing consultant (PaseoCreative.com), but has savored the slower pace of life and extra snuggles, adventures, and belly laughs with her family. Michelle has a heart for connecting with and encouraging other women, especially moms and she thrives on diving into the difficult and sifting through it to uncover the silver lining.
