Michelle Ort was born in Toronto, Canada, but grew up in the American Midwest (mostly Indianapolis, IN) and can prove it by kicking your butt in euchre. She spent most of her time both in high school and at the College of Wooster becoming fluent in French, German, Russian, and math. Her first post-grad year was devoted to teaching English through the Fulbright program in Ukhta, Russia - which, by the way, is NOT in Siberia. From northern Russia, southern California seemed a logical next step, and she is thrilled about substituting a cross-country drive for the usual transatlantic flight this fall, as well as about learning tons of new outdoor skills!
