Michelle holds a BA in theater arts with an acting emphasis from UC Santa Cruz. Her theater experience is extensive; from the classics to the modern and most everything in between. Her love for theater is still strong and she goes back to it whenever time permits.

Her film work includes roles in "Mango Kiss," “Evolution” with Julianne Moore, “Unspeakable” with Dennis Hopper, “Sol Goode” with Robert Wagner and "The Ten Rules." She also worked on countless shorts and experimental indies. Michelle’s television experience is extensive, including roles in "ER," "Without A Trace," "Close to Home," "Sleeper Cell, "LA Dragnet," 3 seasons on CBS’s “Chicago Hope” in a reoccurring role as well as 2 seasons appearing on NBC’s “Providence” and 2 seasons on FOX’s “Boston Public.” For a full list check out the credits page.

Michelle’s commercial and print work focuses quite a bit on her passion for fitness. She has done numerous infomercials for new fitness products as well as modeled for and endorsed sporting equipment, athletic apparel, and fitness programs. She loves everything about sports. Whether she is participating or watching, it is something you will find Michelle doing in her off time. She holds a 2nd degree black belt and a teaching certificate in ATA Taekwondo. She hopes to be able to use this skill in many films to come. She plays many sports and can fumble her way through any sport she doesn’t actively participate in. Scuba Diving is another love she doesn’t get to participate in often enough. She competed for many years in swimming but now just loves to be in the water for pleasure.

Michelle resides in Los Angeles now but still misses San Francisco, where she lived for 6 years and which will always be “home."
