Michelle grew up in the Midwest. She attended Michigan State where she also worked at a talent agency, and had majored in video and radio production. When asked by her boss to attend some of the auditions that she had been booking for others, Michelle got interested in acting so she got training at several
different improv groups in Chicago.

A move to Los Angeles resulted in getting some voiceover work with Bang Zoom in the rapidly growing anime field. She initially voiced under her mother's name, Georgette Rose, and landed a few major roles was playing the lead character Chi in Chobits and also Miki in the romantic comedy Marmalade Boy where she also got to do some extensive narratives.

Michelle has mentioned in interviews that she was very fortunate that she was able to do voiceover work for so long without having to do another day job. In 2006, she was given the privilege of voicing lead character Rukia Kuchiki in the long running and popular series Bleach. As a result she has also been attending more conventions than ever before.

On the Internet, Michelle has an official site, a Myspace, and an email fan group that she occasionally posts to.
