The future of the cancer registrar holds some exciting promise!  RegistryMindset was launched after a conversation Michele Webb CTR had with a small group of registrars one day in Laguna Hills.  Her goal is to reach cancer registrars around the world by providing cancer registry continuing education and learning opportunities for professional growth and development and CTR credential maintenance.  For over 25 years Michele has been passionate about helping cancer registrars and others interested in this exciting career. 


When Michele is not working you may find her with her Australian Shepherd dog, reading, doing counted cross-stitch, photography, or camping.  Her newest interests include motorcycling (one day she will own a Harley) and marquetry.  She has participated in two 3-day walks (60 miles) for breast cancer research held in Seattle, WA and San Diego, CA and is a volunteer for the American Red Cross.  Outside of the workplace she is known as “Auntie ‘chele” and enjoys spending time with her family and friends
