Hometown: Edina, Minnesota
"The Bachelor" Season 25 (Matt James)
Michelle is a former Division I basketball player who now, in her elementary school teacher job, focuses on preparing her students to be the next generation of community leaders. Admittedly, she is an overworker and says she is here because she is ready to find love and a man with whom to start a family. As a partner, she describes herself as loyal, compassionate, and supportive, and shows love through acts of service. Her dream man is confident but not cocky and will look at her as his equal in all things. When Michelle’s not working, she loves to spend time with friends hiking and wine tasting. She is very adventurous in life and in appetite; she says that all of her favorite restaurants are local food trucks. Michelle has big dreams for the future and says she wants a man by her side who is supportive and driven to make the world a better place. She is looking for the superman to her superwoman and says that, together, she hopes that she and Matt can fall in love and change the world.
