We’re happy to have you featured on FHM! Tell us, what are some of the things you did to prepare for this shoot? Thank you so much for the feature! I had to drink a whole lot of water and stretch. Staying hydrated and ready for any position is super important to me when it comes to shoots. I barely got any rest the evening before but it’s because I was so pumped!

You’ve got an amazing figure and beauty about you, we’re keen to know what you would say is your favorite physical feature about yourself and why? My smile (and my boobs come a close second). I believe that no matter if you see someone in person, over the phone, or the new norm behind a mask that if you’re smiling the person you are speaking to smiles back. I just want to give out a bunch of free smiles. 

Being a glamorous model must have its perks, what are some of the most memorable experiences in your career? My FHM feature! I honestly have been in love with content creation. I come up with these awesome ideas and even if not all of them work I want to try them out. Once I was leaving for a meeting and thought hold on that chair is perfect for a shot – take my picture really quick. It was my favorite shot of the day. 

What would you say sets you apart? I’m a huge ball of energy. My 5’3.5 size might fool some, but I always like to laugh and have a great time no matter where I am. At a shoot, a PTA meeting, or even just walking the aisles of Target. I try to keep myself laughing or happy and in turn anyone around me I try to keep that same energy. Call me the energizer Michelle. 

On the topic of men, what were the complete best, and worst first impressions you’ve got on a first date? Oh no! I was hoping this question wouldn’t pop up – however since it did, here goes nothing. Best would have to be when I had a first date with this man and he did everything he could to know what things I liked and didn’t like prior to meeting me (food, flowers, eating indoors, outdoors, style, etc) so he could take me somewhere I truly would enjoy along with his company. THE WORST, well first his breath was horrific. He had way too much cologne on, and during dinner he decided to say “I’m STD free by the way”. Yes in the middle of a meal over champagne and conversation, that was blurted out. 

What would you say is the most surprising thing about you that not many people know? I’m a mom of two kids. 

If you had to choose, would you say money and wealth determines success, or is it one’s personal achievements and happiness? From my own personal experience I think everyone is different and what works for one person might not work for another. For me personally, I prefer personal achievements and happiness. Nowadays it’s super hard to find true happiness, I feel like if you find it you need to hold on to it and work towards finding how you can maintain that. 

On a more personal level and in an ideal world, where do you see yourself in five or ten years; time in terms of family life, career, or both? I actually have goals that I know I’ll reach within those guideline examples – but just a few things that I can share: Working with breast cancer patients, on reconstruction, and mental health post-surgery. Continued growth with my kids’ company BuyMomFlowers. Potentially traveling. 

2020 was a challenging year for us all. What advice would you give to other models or aspiring models out there in light of all the challenges faced? Stay true to yourself, do what makes YOU happy. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what the rest of the world is doing, or what the next person might be doing or your best friend, do what works for you because what makes you happy is important. Also, look in the mirror every day and tell yourself how beautiful you are. Model or not, YOU are beautiful. 

Any final words to our readers on what to expect from you this year? Expect lots of announcements, content creation, and tons of new content on all of my platforms. 2021 here I come!
