Born in Mexico, to an Italian mother and a Mexican father, Michelle showed her true passion for performing at a very young age. By 6 years old, she was staging full productions for friends and family visiting on weekends. Her blossoming talent for performance was equaled only by her burgeoning skill for drawing.

In Junior High, Michelle had her first real taste of the stage. Later on she found herself pulled between her two loves, Acting and Architecture. Despite her academic achievements while studying architecture, her professors encouraged her to pursue acting after being blown away by her performance.

Soon after leaving Mexico City for Toronto, Michelle graduated from The Randolph Academy For The Performing Arts in 2002. She has continuously studied Film Acting with Lewis Baumander.

And the roles have come rolling in!

Michelle has worked alongside Mickey Rourke in Killshot, had a recurring role with Christina Hendricks and Taye Diggs in the series Kevin Hill, and, more recently, she shared the screen with acclaimed actress Tatiana Maslany in two episodes of Orphan Black. Michelle can also be seen in, among other credits, Beauty and the Beast, The Bridge, Tilt, Billable Hours, Rainbow Kid and the award-winning film Kidnap Capital as the Female Lead.
