About Michelle Rahm, President, QMB, Inc. & Graduate Gemologist
After seven years in corporate management, Michelle decided she needed a change. She founded her first Internet business in 1997, becoming a pioneer in online business and a recognized expert in credit card fraud prevention. The Company established JewelryImpressions.com as a division of QMB in 1999, EngravingShop.com in 2003, which she sold in 2007, and OurCustomWeddingRings.com in 2009. In 2015 Michelle founded the non-profit GemsOfMadagascar.org after a business trip to Madagascar left her astonished by the striking poverty and terrible living conditions there.
Michelle holds a Graduate Gemologist Diploma, Graduate Diamonds Diploma and Graduate Colored Stones Diploma through the Gemological Institute of America's distance education program (GIA).
Rahm has spoken to a number of groups, written articles and been an interview subject for a number of leading trade, Internet and media outlets, including InStore magazine, the Denver Post, Life & Style Weekly magazine, NBC's Dateline, and others.
Rahm grew up in Dubuque, Iowa. She is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin - Platteville, where she earned a bachelor's degree in business administration, with emphases in marketing and management and a minor in Spanish. She was honored by UWP as an outstanding business alumnus of its College of Business, Industry, Life Science and Agriculture in 2003. Michelle worked actively with her alma mater to establish an e-commerce curriculum at the school.
Michelle and her husband have an adult son, Joshua, and in her spare time she enjoys playing golf, hiking, watching movies, skiing, gardening, watching football, entertaining, traveling and health and fitness.
