About the Author

Michelle received her Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling with a personal concentration in trauma and bereavement. She decided to write Weeping Willow half way through her program with the intent of reaching out to those who have lost a sibling, to those who lost someone tragically, and to young adults who have lost a loved one and feel lost and forgotten about.

On her free time, Michelle enjoys playing her instruments, composing music, choreographing dances, traveling and reading. But her favorite thing to do is laugh. She is also a volunteer EMT in her hometown.

Michelle grew up in Yorktown, NY and received awards for the public speaking she did throughout Westchester County's public schools. She currently resides in Westchester County, NY.
