Michelle was recently chosen as one of Philadelphia's Sexiest Singles of 2009 by The Philadelphia Daily News in which a full spread article featured information on her motivational company and book. When The Philadelphia Daily News asked Michelle where her inspiration came from she responded by stating "I found myself in a very rough place two years ago. I wasn't happy with what was going on in my life. I just made myself do what I said I was going to do and my book 22 Life Principles for the Ultimate Woman was at the top of the list. That's when I decided to start my company. I've always wanted to write a book. I've always wanted to help women."

Michelle has a bachelor's degree in Business Management from Johnson C. Smith University. She has over fifteen years of experience in the pharmaceutical/bio-tech industry and is also a real estate investor. To contact her, please email her directly at
