Michele Atwood is a life-long Disney Enthusiast and fan who has turned her love of all things Disney into a full time job. Born in Michigan, Michele began traveling to Disney World with her family as a child, and started taking regular trips ever since. Michele has an educational background in Finance, and worked in the Investment Banking field until 2010. Michele also was self employed by making Disney themed accessories and worked the art show circuit for her business, Cindershella’s Boutique. With Disney at the forefront, she decided to share her love of The Mouse with others and create The Main Street Mouse back in late 2009. The idea for the site came during a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort with her husband Scott in 2008. The goal Michele had was to create a place for Disney Fans to congregate and share Disney Information, as well as their own personal memories and stories. Also, keeping in mind her two sons, Andrew and Aidan, who she also groomed to be Disney Enthusiasts, she wanted to make TMSM a place for Disney Fans of all ages.
Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. By making The Main Street Mouse interactive with the Fans, it keeps things on a family friendly and personal level, which was the idea all along. Michele has become the go-to person on TMSM as well as different social media outlets for the site. Her husband Scott is the Webmaster/Builder on the back end of TMSM. Together, they keep The Main Street Mouse running on all aspects. Michele’s goal is to continue to bring some Disney Magic to Fans each day.
