All-around upstart, Michelle holds a dual BA in Philosophy and in English with a creative writing emphasis. This has made her painfully meticulous, logical to a fault, overly organized, and hilariously awkward. She is married to a man equal in both salt and weirdness, and together they have two beautiful oddball daughters. She is also mom to a dog named Church, a snake named Adam, and three cats: Burt Reynolds, Kid Cloud “Bub” Sunday, and Shortline. One day she hopes to add a chameleon named Roger to the family. When she is not reading, developing curriculum, or writing surreal short stories, you can find Michelle perfecting her decent archery skills or struggling to improve her terrible ballet skills. She also enjoys swimming, biking, playing video games, eating anything bread-related, and watching Marx Brothers movies. Michelle can quote from every episode of The Office and has never entered a room she couldn’t escape.
