Originally from Orange County, Michelle Skinner made her stage debut at the age of 14 as an ensemble member in On the Twentieth Century, and hasn't looked back since. 

          After high school, she followed her passion, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Drama from the University of California, Irvine. Deciding to graduate early, Michelle was accepted into the acclaimed acting program at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa. She has since continued to hone her skills at the Upright Citizens Brigade in LA and American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco. 

          In 2015, after being cast in several productions in a local regional theatre, Michelle moved to the Bay Area. She's continued to perform regularly across the Bay in productions ranging from local community theatre to the regional theatre TheatreWorks SIlicon Valley, where she earned her EMC card. 

         Her heart is on the stage and in her work, and she can't wait to continue to see where her passion will take her next.
