Innovation Opportunities

Seeking innovative solutions for:

Michelle Axelrod

Office Manager

I grew up in Canada where I started performing in theatre from a young age. After starting my own after-school theatre program when my high school cut the funding for ours, I came to realize that I found equally as much joy and happiness off the stage as on it. Working as a stage manager or a technician I learned that the work behind the scenes is equally, if not more, important as the starring roles.

My strengths are in the details and the organization of projects. I take pride in my ability to help others do their best. I appreciate the constant challenge to better our environment. Xinova stands apart by encouraging change, while many other companies are often stuck in their routines. One of my favorite parts of working here is being able to look back after a week, a month, a year, and see the actual change you’ve made. No matter your role, your impact is noticed and celebrated. The balance between freedom to explore and support is wonderful.

A newbie to the west coast, by way of Florida and New York, I’m still learning all about my new city: constantly finding new restaurants to try and enjoying being out in nature.
