A native of Northport, Alabama of Vietnamese and German descent, Glick's theatrical training began at the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Since graduating in 2003, she's had the opportunity to study with noteworthy acting coaches who push her to be the best actress she can be such as Ken Schatz, Eric Morris (author: No Acting Please), Anthony Vincent Bova and Elizabeth Kemp - acting coach to Harvey Keitel and Bradley Cooper and moderator at The Actor's Studio. It was through her work with Kemp that Michelle was exposed to the tradition that is The Actor's Studio and their commitment to craftsmanship and exploring character, which she savors to this day.

In recent years, Glick has stretched her talents into writing and producing. In 2009 she penned her own autobiographical one-person show, Luv Ain't Purfect and followed that up in 2010 with Asian Belle. After garnering positive reviews in New York City, she took Asian Belle to Los Angeles (2011) where it was also well received.

S. and abroad. Recently, the FilmGym has had two films qualify for the Oscar race: The Bridge (2011) and The Sea Is All I Know (2012), the latter starring 2010 Oscar winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter) and Peter Gerety (The Wire). FilmGym's screenplays have received nods from The IFP Market, Slamdance and Sundance. Michelle also serves as Artistic Director of FilmGym DOGMA, a collective of writers, actors and filmmakers who meet regularly to read and discuss new work. DOGMA has a political and social focus and its first film will go into production in 2012.
