Personal Bio

As Senior Estimator at Abbott Construction with over 25 years of industry experience, Michele is responsible for developing pre-construction estimates and managing the target cost model through construction. She also manages the bidding of select projects, leads value engineering efforts, and participates in constructability reviews.

With a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Fort Wright College, Michele has estimated, planned, bid, and led proposal efforts for billions of dollars’ worth of projects since 1989 in the greater Puget Sound region, with occasional work in the Portland, Oregon area.

She has estimated and planned projects in several industry sectors, including inpatient and outpatient healthcare, retail, hospitality, mixed-use residential, restaurant, light industrial, and high-end Class-A office tenant improvements.

When not at Abbott, Michele enjoys spending time with her two adult daughters. She is an avid hiker and has hiked over 85 miles to Everest Base Camp in Nepal.

Abbott's work was performed on-time, on-budget and ultimately resulted in a world-class facility not only for the making of whiskey, but also sharing the whiskey making process with our customers.
