Michelle likes puppies, ping pong, and pizza. She also likes alliteration. She has a BA and MFA in Literature and Writing. She has been an advertising copywriter for over 15 years and is the creative lead for a mobile tech company in Encinitas. Michelle also runs her own social media marketing agency. She has been writing the same novel for 100 years. In addition to working one-on-one with students in the writing center, Michelle is a brand new mentor for the Palomar Puente Project. Writing in third person brings her endless joy but not as much as helping Palomar students break through the difficult task of starting their epic essays.
