Michelle has been with Belmore Court & Motel for 3 years, initially as a full-time Receptionist and for the past 18 months, as Reception Supervisor.
Michelle was born in Belfast and spent the first 20 years of her life there. In 2001, as part of her diploma in Communications, Advertising & Marketing, she spent the year living in the United States before returning to Northern Ireland in 2002.
During her time away, Michelle’s family had relocated to Co. Fermanagh to purchase a small retail business. After spending a summer with them, she decided that this is where she could see her future and made the decision the leave the big smoke and join them. For the next 7 years, she worked alongside her family to build the business.
In 2010, following her parent’s retirement, Michelle decided that she needed a new challenge. Despite not working in the hospitality industry before, she embraced the idea and took up a position with the Reception team in Belmore Court & Motel. Since then, she has been part of the team that has been both finalist and runner up in Northern Ireland Reception Team of the Year. At the moment, Michelle leads a team of 6 Receptionists and her primary role is to ensure that the front desk runs smoothly and that our guests get the best possible customer care.
Michelle currently lives in Lisnaskea and has just recently got engaged to her fiancé Tommy.
