She received a Bachelor of Science in Music Therapy, as well as a Bachelor of Music (Voice Concentration) from the State University of New York at Fredonia. While at SUNY Fredonia, Michelle became a member of Sigma Alpha Iota, International Music Fraternity for Women, and is an active member to this day. Because of her musical background, she is an active member in the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir.
