Michelle (Falk) Todd was born in Los Angeles and raised in Huntington Beach, California. She attended Brigham Young University and received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 1992 and Master of Public Administration in 1994. While earning her MPA, she completed an internship with the Department of Emergency Management for the State of Utah. Following graduation, Michelle returned to Southern California and worked in healthcare management for Managed Care Innovations, Inc. Michelle resolved to jump fulltime into her creative passion and graduated with an additional Bachelor’s degree in Film Production from California State University Northridge in 2003. An internship with New Regency Productions on the 20thCentury Fox Studio lot in Los Angeles led to employment as a Production Coordinator with Fox’s Feature Film Production Department. In 2007, family circumstances required a move from Los Angeles back down to Orange County where Michelle had the opportunity to contribute her leadership and creative skills to Park Operations and Entertainment Operations at the Disneyland Resort through 2016.

Presently, Michelle is part of the leadership team at Deseret Book and Distribution Services in Costa Mesa, California, and loves working for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in this capacity. She has been actively involved in various positions with the Church, her favorite being as an Ordinance Worker at the Newport Beach, California Temple.
