Raised around the world as a D.O.D child, Michelle can see everything from multiple perspectives. She is compassionate, empathetic, and intuitive. Her patients appreciate her caring and fun bedside manner. Michelle will always be honest and give patients realistic expectations. An artist and pianist as a child, it was a natural fit to work in aesthetic medicine. 

She is a proud University of Arizona wildcat alumni, where she received a B.S. in Physiological Science and a minor in Business Administration. After acceptance to many reputable Physician Assistant programs, she chose to attend Midwestern University, Glendale, a top 20 PA program. Michelle always wanted to help people by practicing medicine and is passionate about the hands-on procedural aspect of practice. 

She loves to travel, especially to France, swim and SUP at the beach, and hang with her husband and young son. Fitness is important, so you may see her on a hike, at barre class, or even guest teaching a megaformer pilates class!
