A natural love of dance and a competitive spirit lead to a career in figure skating, whereas a teenager Michelle trained for a spot on the United States Olympic team while living in her native Los Angeles, California.
After suffering a serious spinal injury in a car accident as a young adult, Michelle embraced yoga as one piece of a holistic rehabilitation method that also included nutrition, muscular resistance training, and Chinese medicine.
