Michelle has been married to her high-school sweetheart, Clint, for 19 years. Their home is filled with controlled chaos with three active boys.  They spend their weekends watching Ben, 15 and Luke, 13, and Wil,5, on the fields.  Living in a houseful of boys has been an enlightening experience for Michelle after growing up with all sisters.  In between managing a family of five, Michelle mentors a large Arbonne team as a Regional Vice President. Michelle enjoys traveling, date nights, and low-key evenings with nothing on the schedule.
