Michelle Blouin has worked at Relyco for over 15 years. Not only is she one of our longtime veteran employees, she is also a military veteran, having served in the US Navy for eight years. During that time, she was on an aircraft carrier, the USS Abraham Lincoln. (Check out this cool video of the carrier doing high-speed turns!)
Even though Michelle is hardworking and professional, she has a laid-back personality, which comes as a bit of a surprise once you discover how busy she is. She maintains a jam-packed schedule outside of work, but you wouldn’t know it based on her calm demeanor in the office. She regularly participates in local theater as a stage manager (and occasional actress); her most recent production was at Seacoast Repertory Theatre. Additionally, she is currently attending culinary school and hopes to “someday earn the title of chef.” Yeah, we told you: she is crazy busy!
Michelle is a team player and she always tries to bring a smile to her co-workers’ faces. She entertains her co-workers with dance moves and has a fascination with sharks. (See the GIF of her combining those two passions!) YES, those are shark slippers! She brought them in to show us. As you can imagine, she’s a lot of fun to have in the office!
