Michaela is an LA Laner, she’s only been on the team for a few months and has been a great LA addition. So far her favorite gig was working with EventFarm at the E3 afterparty for Fortnite. Laners were working check in and a variety of experiential elements throughout the activation.
Outside the Lane Michaela is a professional actor & dancer. She’s extremely passionate about animals (dogs in particular). She’s going to Puerto Rico in November to help out at a Spayathon event for The Sato Project. Michaela claims she has the sense of humor of a 14 year old boy and loves to make the people around her laugh & feel happy. She grew up in a small town in Maine where her parents owned a Skatepark for years. Her family nickname is Mickey and she just recently worked with Toni Basil (the singer of the 1981 song “Mickey”) which felt serendipitous.
Fun Fact: Michaela danced with Cardi B at this year’s Coachella!
