About Michelle

Michelle is a Coast Salish Indigenous performer from the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw, with additional ancestry from the We Wai Kai Nation. She grew up in Surrey BC, where she was immersed in the arts from a very young age.


After graduating the Musical Theatre Program at Capilano University (and more recently, their Bachelor of Performing Arts Program) Michelle has been working steadily as an actor, singer and writer. Some of her favourite theatre credits include Belle in Beauty and the Beast and Sophie in Mamma Mia! (Arts Club), Eponine in Les Miserables (Chemainus Theatre Festival) and Kathleen in the world premiere of Tell Tale Harbour (Charlottetown Festival).

Michelle has also begun working in tv, film and voiceover. She voices multiple characters on Spirit Rangers (Netflix) and recently recorded the audiobook narration for Wab Kinew's Everlasting Road. She was also on Motherland: Fort Salem.

Michelle enjoys performing as a vocalist, and is honoured to be a guest singer from time to time with two amazing Indigenous music groups: Tillicum Shantie, and M'Girl

Michelle is very proud of her ancestry, and she is doing her best to be a good role model for the youth of her Nation. Michelle received a grant from the BC Arts Council last year to assist with learning the traditional Sḵwx̱wú7mesh language. She has also been attending singing/drumming gatherings with her relations, learning Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Coast Salish songs. Earlier this year, she received a grant from the Bill Millerd Artist Fund to pursue a mentorship with esteemed writer, Matt Murray, to begin work on a musical based on the true history of her great-great grandmother.
