Michele Bettinazzi started in the student housing business as an on-campus Resident Assistant in 2005 while attending The University of Texas Pan American – graduating with a degree in Philosophy. The student experience and the services provided by the industry resonated with her and she quickly became passionate about doing her part to make the student housing industry a great place for students. She joined PeakMade Real Estate in February of 2008 and has served in many roles – from Leasing Consultant to Property Manager, to a member of the Corporate Marketing Team. In her role as Customer Experience Manager, she has built a program focusing on strategically making the Customer Experience a great one by gaining customer knowledge that influences business decisions and ultimately results in better marketing, sales and leasing efforts. Michele is Texas-based, is happily married with a 6-year old daughter and a beagle, loves the performing arts, and can whip up a great Texas-sized meal at a moment’s notice because she loves cooking in her spare time.
