Michelle grew up on Long Island, filling her life with dance, music, & theatre from a young age. She was fortunate enough to have teachers that allowed her to explore classical, jazz, pop, & musical theatre. After facing a few obstacles as a young singer, Michelle pursued Classical singing at Ithaca College. She received her BM in Voice Performance in 2013 before deciding to move to NYC to learn even more. Michelle received a MM in Musical Theatre and an Advanced Certificate in Vocal Pedagogy from New York University. She has since served as faculty at New Jersey City University as well as a teaching artist at St. Ignatius Loyola School, Gateway Playhouse, & a coach at Broadway Artists Alliance. Michelle established her private vocal studio for technique & coaching in 2018 and has been loving every second of it since. She's also been seen sailing the world with Norwegian Cruise Line, experiencing life as a performer and vocal captain.
Michelle loves to read, run, kickbox, play piano, ask random strangers if she can pet their dogs, and cook large Italian meals.
She currently resides and teaches in Astoria, NY.
