Michelle was born to Michael and Maureen Rowell in 1986 and grew up in the Manomet section of Plymouth. Growing up, Michelle was an accomplished horseback rider, winning many ribbons at riding competitions. Michelle graduated from Plymouth South High School in 2004 and went on to study cosmetology. After graduating, she worked in several different salons as a stylist and built a loyal clientele. Later, she worked with her mother at Glidecam, a camera stabilization company and even did a few modeling stints for them showcasing some of their wearable gear.

Michelle had a sweet soul and a free and artistic spirit. She loved painting, making festive holiday wreaths and creating beautiful garden landscapes at the family’s beloved cottage in Manomet. She was a lover of all animals and had recently been volunteering at a farm. By far her favorite companion was her cherished dog Buddy whom she adopted more than 10 years ago. She loved taking him on walks at the beach, car rides, and giving him far too many treats.
