Michele Frizzell has a passion for mahjong! As a child, Michele watched her Filipino grandfather play mahjong with his friends and it mystified her. In 1973 Michele’s mother, Carolyn, learned how to play Wright-Patterson Mah Jongg while stationed at McChord Air Force Base. Carolyn taught Michele how to play so she could practice at home so mahjong was their special bond. Carolyn became an avid player and led several Mahjong groups. On occasion Michele would play with Carolyn and her friends – these have become some of Michele’s most cherished memories. Sadly, Carolyn passed away from cancer in 2004. That was the pivotal moment when Michele began to share the joys of the game in honor of her mother.  

Through the years Michele has become an advanced player of several styles.  

National Mah Jongg League ~ Complex 

Wright-Patterson ~ Distinctive 

Hong Kong ~ Fast and flexible 

Riichi ~ Tactical 

What makes Michele unique is that she teaches all of these styles as well. She has designed comprehensive player references and has developed tried-and-true teaching methods that have shortened the learning curve significantly for most players. Anyone who has learned to play from Michele speaks highly of her creative approach to learning and great patience as a teacher. 

Michele values service to the community. She is committed to providing services with underpinnings of kindness and patience to ensure satisfied players who, in turn, propagate the joys of the game.
