Michelle was born on the Fraser Coast of Queensland in 1965, she lives in the Fiji Islands. On the cusp of a Fijian sunset, amongst the debris of betrayal, is where Pineapple Rise was born. Pineapple Rise is a platform to encourage women to write their experiences and share them.

The vision is to share our stories which requires us to be brave and in the act of sharing we become more empowered.

The mission is to improve writing skills, encouraging conversation and to foster compassion.

The goal is for emotionally and psychologically healthier lives, so we can raise our children in a brighter future.
