Michelle grew up on the gulf coast of Florida and developed a passion for surfing in high school. She has spent the last 7 years in Central America, calling Bocas Del Toro, Panama her home.

Michelle loves Boca’s community, the simplicity of island life, driving a boat instead of a car, and of course the variety of epic waves from reef breaks, slabs, point breaks, and sandy beach breaks (lots of barrels).

She enjoys traveling and hosting women’s surf and yoga retreats in many locations (including Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Indonesia, Morocco, and her very own home break in Panama) with her amazing SeaScape Travel Company & Surf With Amigas. When not surfing, Michelle can be found cooking healthy food, playing games, practicing yoga and pilates, rollerblading, grillin’, fishing, snorkeling, or adventuring.
