Growing up in Charlotte, Michelle has had a love for fitness since a young age, when she used to tag along with her mom to her group exercise classes at the YMCA. She also played soccer, loved to run, dance, really just do anything to be active. She attended UNC Chapel Hill, where she met her husband, KC and they moved to the Lake Norman area in 2001 and got married the following year. She has three children - Topher her oldest and he turns 16 in November (!) and is a sophomore at Hough, and she has two girls Katie (13) is in 8th grade and Anna Brook (11) is in 6th grade - both at Bailey. They also have a fur-baby, Chip, an 8 year old Golden Doodle. She stays very busy running kids around to school and sports activities and just managing life with three kids but she loves it and wouldn't trade it for anything! In her free time, she loves to take long walks, go on bike rides, read and spend time on the lake with her family.
She has been teaching Pure Barre since Katie opened the studio in 2013. Pure Barre is her happy place, a healthy distraction, a therapy session, a social outlet, my favorite store and so much more over the past eight years and she is so very thankful to be a part of the Pure Barre Lake Norman community!
