Michelle grew up in the small town of Windermere, BC in the beautiful Columbia Valley. Michelle was a Rotary Youth Exchange Student in Belgium for a year where she became fluent in French, and expanded her horizons. Her travels inspired her BA in International Relations from UBC Okanagan.

Michelle and her husband Len live in North Oak Bay with their two school-aged children. When not working as Manager of Partnerships and Engagement for Child Care BC, you’ll likely find her in the garden, walking her Golden Retriever, George, or riding around town on her bicycle.
