Who is Michelle?

Michelle currently has two rescue dogs and volunteers with Save our Scruff – a Toronto dog rescue (adopt don’t shop!) 

She says bread is her favourite food but don’t let that fool you, she’s a full-fledged foodie and can direct you to the perfect lunch or dinner spot wherever she’s travelled (and she loves to travel).   

She’s a fairly avid baseball fan and was so happy when her beloved Chicago Cubs won the world series in 2016.   
Her perfect day includes a bicycle ride, lots of fresh air, her dogs, a silent film and a not-your-every-day gin and tonic! 

Michelle has a B.A. (History) from the University of Toronto
