Michelle was born and raised in Las Cruces, NM. Upon graduation, she followed in her older brother’s footsteps and moved far away from home to experience Washington, DC where she attends The George Washington University. At 21 years of age, she is eager to go back and finish her degree in Business Administration (with a concentration in Marketing) in the fall of 2009. She has also stayed true to her passion for music and recently completed a minor in Music. She is currently involved in a Latin ensemble at the university in which she plays various hand percussion instruments, and also performs in a jazz trio called Übercombo. She is also very involved in her praise and worship band at church where she plays keys and organ.

Michelle is currently working as an intern in the Real Estate Management Department here at the San Diego International Airport. Michelle was raised in a family where real estate and property management was a part of her everyday life, similarly for her two brothers as well. As the founder and head broker of Coss Real Estate, Michelle’s mother has worked hard in her profession and has sparked an interest for Michelle in Real Estate. This summer Michelle wishes to engulf herself in the Real Estate environment and learn from the best here at the Airport Authority.
