Michelle Schmader is a DC area native and the proud mother of two UVA students and a lovable yellow Lab. She and Lori met in 2009 and this is their second time working together at Schechter Reed. Michelle began her career as an HR Generalist after completing her master’s degree. During her 4 years in HR, she realized that recruiting was her favorite part of the job, so she pivoted careers and devoted the next 13 years in the staffing agency and corporate recruiting space before leaving the workforce to focus on her family. In 2021, Lori reached back to Michelle, and was thrilled to have her return in a part-time recruiting operations role. Michelle’s recruiting experience arms her well to keep things running smoothly behind the scenes and we all appreciate her candor, sense of humor and recruiting insight.
