Michelle Harris

Michelle Harris attended school at Forsyth Technical Community College with a degree in Radiation Therapy. She has worked in Radiation Oncology for 29 years and is now a Medical Dosimetrist. Her personal life revolves around her photography business, Dalton-Harris Photography, where she and her husband, Ricky, hike the beautiful state of NC in search of perfect pictures and stories. “Creating memories through photographs is a love and passion I’ve had as far back as I can remember,” said Michelle. “While I’ve had the chance to capture memories through the eye of the camera in many genres over the years, the ones that capture my heart most are those images created outdoors and through nature. They seem to speak to me the loudest and offer something unique to all the others. Capturing nature at her finest and sharing that with others, to me, is photography at its best.” In her spare time, Michelle enjoys hiking, scrapbooking and floral arranging.

After working nearly a decade for a local massage practice, she moved back to Winston-Salem, opening Blue Lotus Massage & Bodywork in 2015. Jami began to increase her training after demand increased during the pandemic; becoming a specialist in post-operative massage. Jami now focuses on working primarily with women, trans and non-binary clients recovering from surgical procedures – including mastectomies, breast augmentations, gender-affirming surgeries, tummy tucks, liposuction, Brazilian butt lifts, mommy makeovers, lipo for Lipedema, and face and neck lifts.

We moved back to Winston-Salem where my husband started a new career in financial planning, and I stayed home and homeschooled my four children. I have since also taught at a few other schools and had some odd jobs, but for the last two years, I have been organizing busy and overwhelmed people of the Triad!” Heather’s business is called Simply Organized Spaces. “I have learned so much from women around me who have successful businesses. Whether it’s business advice or advice for my personal life and hobbies; I am truly thankful to live in this community! When I’m not working, I’m usually taking care of my home and family, decorating or am out in my garden fussing over a new type of flower that I’ve planted.”
