As the key business figure, Michele DeGrace is one of the three partners who established Company 5. Michele handled the business and financial aspects of Company 5 and is also involved in brainstorming new product lines and toy designs. Some of her best ideas have come to her while she is sleeping. Michele is also the mediator between the other two partners for when those brainstorming sessions get rough and way too long, and believe me they do. Michele majored in Marketing and Finance at Marymont College in Tarrytown, NY where on occasion David Gilmour was known to have a few beers with her and her friends. Michele is a Mickey Mouse fan and likes to think that Carrie’s son Mickey was named first, after her (his legal name is Michael) and second, because she likes Mickey so much! Little does she know, she’s just lucky she was chosen to be his Godmother!
