Throughout school, she received many awards for both her singing and acting abilities. After participating in all the school plays, she finally made her big screen debut at age 15 in ‘Timeserver’. It wasn’t long after that Michelle began professional training for her on screen acting career. She studied a variety of techniques from on screen to voice over and from scene study to improv.
Since then, she has been involved in many different kinds of projects from films to TV, to comic books to print.
