Bio

Michele is the glue that makes Chile Media run and operate daily. She is responsible for overseeing the behind the scenes and inner workings of Chile Media and the Chile Team.

Dedicated and committed to the Chile Media brand and to their customers, she believes in not over promising but exceeding customer expectations with great customer service and quality products. She will never try to sell something she does not truly believe will be of value to Chile Media customers. Customers appreciate Michele’s honest approach and delivery. Her goal is to create a long-lasting business relationship with each customer in hopes that Chile Media will become their one stop shop for all advertising and marketing needs. She is not afraid to get her hands dirty too, as you will see her in the office at times working on production to meet a customer’s deadline. No job is too big or too small for her.

Michele is credited with adding dye sublimation to Chile Media. She wanted to expand Chile Media’s scope of work to add custom apparel and promo products. Since the acquisition of our dye sublimation machine, Chile Media has been able to sell custom printed tile, full color shirts, table throws, socks, pillows, Chromaluxe panel prints, as well as a variety of promotional products.
