This is Michelle!

She’s Buyatab’s version of a Disney princess gone rogue. She’s a master of numbers, a makeup addict, and is a mom to a little shitzu named Charlie (not pictured above!). Officially, she is our Assistant Controller. When Michelle isn’t busy crunching numbers, you can find her up the street at GongCha indulging in some freshly brewed bubble tea.

Q:  What does a typical day at Buyatab look like for you?

Every day is different! My team does everything from financial reporting and analysis, to corporate orders to fraud and risk management. I get to oversee that as well as work with clients and other teams within Buyatab. No two days are the same!

Q: What has been the most memorable moment for you so far at Buyatab?

When someone at Buyatab said to me, “your team is always smiling! I want to be on your team!”

Q: What is the best part of your role at Buyatab?

That I have the freedom to shape my role into what I want it to be! There’s so much opportunity to learn and do what I’m interested in.

Q: How many tattoos do you have and what do they mean?

I have 7 tattoos in total! I have a cross on my wrist, a quote on my collar bone (impulse tattoo), a diamond on my ribs (that matches my sister’s because diamonds are a girl’s best friend and we’re best friends). I have a floral half sleeve with my mom’s, my sister’s, my fiancee’s, and my favourite flower on my arm and belle on my thigh because I love Disney! I also have 2 quotes from songs I grew up listening to.

Q: If you could be any Disney character who would you be and why?

Belle because she’s intelligent, puts others before her, breaks norms and doesn’t care about what other people say about her.

Q:   What was your favourite TV show when growing up?
