Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think my shoe collection’s complete? A mermaid at heart, Michelle grew up in Manhattan Beach, the ultimate Southern California beach town. Once she found her land legs, she studied Comparative Literature and French History (ooh la la!) at the University of California, Los Angeles. Michelle loves to watch Sex and the City with her girlfriends, play with her golden retriever, Chloe, and—of course—soak up the sun on the beach!
