She starred as Ingrid Jordaan on the M-Net Afrikaans-language soapie Binneland Sub Judice (formerly known as Binnelanders), between 2007 and 2010.

On 23 February 2010, TVSA broke the news that Michelle would be returning to her role as Cherel in Isidingo. This news was confirmed in May 2010.

She returned to Isidingo in early August 2010.
