I’m Michela Owen, the newest team member here at T&S as of the writing of this article. I’m the team’s Marketing Strategist, aka the Content Wizard. I was born and raised here in Oklahoma City!
So you can get to know me, here are 10 interesting facts about yours truly.
Fact 1: I’m an animal lover
When I’m not tending my own precious pup Killer, I can often be found babysitting other people’s dogs. And houses. But mostly snuggling the dogs. It’s a personal dream to snuggle a penguin, but I’m pretty sure that’s illegal, so we’ll see how it goes.
Fact 2: Sorry folks, I’m taken
I got married to my best friend in the whole world, Josiah, in June of 2021. (Don’t tell him that he came after the dog on the facts list.)
Fact 3: I’m a kidney transplant recipient
My dear mother gave me one of her kidneys in May of 2001. Nice of her, right?
Fact 4: I’m a mega geek
It’s probably a good idea to have some nerdy knowledge when working with Tim, but I would consider myself overqualified in that category. Although I like Captain America way more than Superman. Sorry, Tim.
Fact 5: I am a true crime fanatic
My favorite podcast is The Prosecutors, and if you love law dramas or mysteries, you should check it out.
Fact 6: I love iced coffee
Yes, I still drink it iced in the winter.
Fact 7: I swam with the only wholphin in captivity
Her name is Kekaimalu, and she is half whale, half dolphin. She lives at Sea Life Park Hawaii, and yes, the experience was as magical as it sounds.
Fact 8: I am an alumnus of two colleges
I graduated from Baptist Bible College with a degree in Business Management in 2019. After a brief period of time where I worked at Disney World, I went on to attend the University of Oklahoma. I graduated in 2022 with a degree in Public Relations.
Fact 9: I’m an amateur florist
I was the florist and maid of honor for my best friend’s wedding in 2021, and I still make arrangements for fun several times a year.
Fact 10: I don’t wear jewelry on my neck or wrists
I don’t know why it just makes me nuts when they jangle and move around all day! Fun earrings are a must, though.
As you can see, I’m a woman of many interests and talents. From my love for animals to the two degrees that I have obtained, it is clear that no matter what comes my way, I will always be up for the challenge! I am excited to bring all these experiences together to contribute to the team here. Thank you for taking time out of your day to get to know me better!
