Wife, Mother, Attorney and Michigan Business Owner
After practicing law for several years, Angelique co-founded Manufacturing and Design Electronics (“MADE”) in 2010. Located in Auburn Hills, and formerly named CI Lighting, Made designs and manufactures specialized printed circuit boards. Angelique is responsible for strategic growth initiatives. More specifically, she focuses on asset management, acquisition of talent, and contract formation and negotiation.
Prior to founding MADE, Angelique practiced criminal defense and family law. During years of practice with indigent and others in need, she developed a passion for ensuring access to the legal system. Her inside view of the way the law is used to control people with fines and costs that make the criminal justice system biased against the poor and others outside the power structure.
The daughter of an immigrant mother and a father who served in the U.S. Air Force, Angelique views American citizenship as a privilege that can be leveraged by innovative individuals to harness the growing opportunities of the global marketplace. A strong advocate of free enterprise and the dream of all Americans to be free to participate without excessive government mandates. Understanding and observing the process by which her mom became a citizen gives special drive in Angelique for so many hoping to live the American Dream.
Angelique holds a BS in Political Science and Juris Doctorate from the University of Detroit Mercy, an MBA from Northwestern University, and a Certificate in Strategic Change Management from Eli Broad School of Management at Michigan State University. She resides in Lake Orion with her husband Michael and their two daughters.
