Originally from Minnesota and raised on a dairy farm, Michelle studied fine arts in college. She moved to the east coast to do graduate studies in weaving at Tyler School of Art.
After experiencing many different types of bodywork, and healing the aches and pains of life, Michelle decided to study massage therapy.
