I was born and raised in Champaign, Illinois. Currently I reside in Florida (see above). I hold a Bachelors of Science in Business Management and a Masters Degree in Business Management. I am beginning my second year in Nova Southeastern University’s doctoral program with a 3.83 GPA—department of conflict resolution and international peace studies, concentration on environmental policy analysis/consultation.
I am joint founder of the Apalachicola Yacht Club and hold the office of Secretary/Treasurer. I am a past member of the advisory board for the Boys and Girls Clubs, past volunteer rescue person for the Wildlife Rescue League, current volunteer for the Department of Emergency Management for Monroe County, past liaison for the Department of Community Affairs and the County/Local government of Monroe County/Key West, FL. for hurricane relief, current political activist and fundraiser.
Travels have taken me from Europe through the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, and across much of the United States.
I enjoy outdoor activities like sailing, waterskiing, hiking, bike riding, working out, and fishing as well as reading, music, theatre, playing with my two amusing pets (Abu Chez, my 10 year old Australian Blue Heeler and Zack, my seven year old yellow tabby cat) and writing.

Click on buy now and my book should top out the list. “ I have authored four other books and penned over one hundred fifty plus articles available on www.useless-knowledge.com and over two hundred articles of various genres for www.AmericanChronicle.com. Other literary works include three completed screenplays that can be perused on my personal web site www.MichelleMalsbury.com.
I began my doctoral education with the University of Phoenix (spent one semester there before transferring to Nova) with concentration in Business Leadership, (since all of my other degrees are also in business management), but found my perfect fit with Nova’s program (entering my second year-Fall 2008) in Conflict Resolution and Peace Studies. My specialization, at this time, will be working toward becoming a environmental policy analyst/conflict specialist.
