Michelle was born in Kalispell, Montana, on September 9, 1980. She grew up in the location where her family had lived for centuries before her family went west to California. Despite having four siblings, Williams’ family was not particularly close. Her bond with her father, on the other hand, was closer than most. Larry R. Williams is a commodities trader and author who taught his daughter how to hunt and fish. The family had moved to San Francisco by the time Michelle was nine, and the reclusive Michelle was well on her way to independence.
