About this pro

I have successfully coached students for the last 15 years to help with everything from local school auditions to Broadway. I specialize in the College Audition process and I am part owner of College Audition Project (www.collegeauditionproject.com) as well as my own studio. My clients are all over the US and Mexico and rang from 10 to 40 years of age. No matter what the need or obstacle in front of them, I am there to help each of my students obtain their goal as grow as an artist!

I love being able to watch people gain confidence in themselves, not only as a performer but as a person. I love the personal connection and teamwork that is involved with coaching actors.

    ‭Michelle transformed me as an actor. I felt so prepared for my college auditions and so much of that is thanks to her. I received excellent training from her my senior year which laid a strong foundation for my freshman year of college. I also had the privilege of working with her for many years my director. She continuously pushed me out of my comfort zone and I am so grateful for how it caused me to grow and strengthened me in my craft. She is an absolute joy to work with and I cannot strongly enough recommend her for training. ‬

    ‭Before I took lessons with Michelle, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was getting myself into with the college audition process. There was a LOT of information that seemed overwhelming at first, but she helped me go through it and feel secure before I actually auditioned anywhere. With each lesson I understood more about how to let yourself shine through monologues, songs, and even your slate! I really would not be where I am right now without Michelle; I feel so much better about my acting, and performing as a whole, thanks to her teaching. You really won’t regret taking lessons with this wonderful woman.‬

    I absolutely loved having Michelle guide me through the college audition process. She has so much knowledge and knows exactly what to do to get you ready. She is very dedicated to making sure you are confident when you go in those rooms. I’ve also had the opportunity to have her as a director and that led me to taking private lessons because I love her teaching style. I would highly recommend taking from Michelle, I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without her help.
