Michelle grew up in NJ; however, since graduating from Montclair State University, she has resided in San Francisco, Dallas, Boston and Chicago. Despite her nomadic lifestyle, she managed to earn her MBA while exploring various career paths. Michelle's career in the airline industry allowed her the opportunity to travel all over the world. During that time she enjoyed visiting 45 states and many countries, but decided it was finally time to put down roots in her home state. She moved back to NJ from Chicago in the fall of 2010 to open LBD with her best friend. Michelle is an avid runner and fitness enthusiast and is currently working hard to expand her certifications and specialties within the fitness industry. Although she has very little free time, she enjoys reading, relaxing with friends and family, and attending Yankee games.
