Michelle grew up in Manila, Philippines. As a young child, she got a taste of traveling abroad when her family visited Jeddah, Amsterdam, and America. In fourth grade, her family moved to America and eventually settled in Tucson. Michelle graduated from the UA with a degree in Accounting. After graduating, she and her husband moved to Austin, TX where she had a short but successful career in accounting. Michelle realized that accounting wasn't for her and after quitting her job, she and her husband lived in India for four months where she trained to be a teacher. She worked at a private school in Austin for six years as a math teacher and, eventually, as the high school campus head. After the birth of her son, her family moved back to Tucson to be near relatives. When her son was four years old, her family moved to Europe and lived there for fourteen months. Michelle feels that traveling and living abroad has given her a broader perspective on life and she is thrilled to help UA students achieve their dreams of studying abroad.
