Michelle was born and raised in South Africa, where she lived until the age of 26. Upon graduating from Stellenbosch University Michelle's passion for the sport of rowing, in which she had participated throughout her college years, led her beyond the borders of her country. Living for several years in Britain, where she rowed and coached extensively, Michelle then settled in the United States, continuing to coach rowing at various High Schools and a Division 1 College. The growing demands of a young family resulted in a career change when Michelle took the skills developed while coaching into the public school classroom, teaching Latin in Orange County High Schools for 8 years.
Her love for teaching and building personal relationships now serves her well in the world of Real Estate. A long-time resident of Orlando, Michelle's intimate knowledge of, and close ties with both Orange and Seminole County schools benefits her clients. Michelle is married with two daughters and a huge menagerie of pets which just seems to keep growing. She also volunteers in the local Arts community.
Having moved to Orlando knowing nobody, Michelle benefited from the welcome and kindness of our friendly community, she pays this forward by making sure that new residents feel the warmth and hospitality of our community.
