Born in Chicago, Illinois, Michelle Stafford made the trek to California as an infant. Her parents moved her and her older sister, Janine, to Montrose, California, where she was raised. After graduating from high school, Stafford chased after her dream of modeling. None of the modeling agents in town were interested in her because she lacked the look they were searching for. After a year of struggling, she landed an agent, who helped her book television commercials.

Just as she was finally breaking into modeling, she developed a brain tumor. Her eyelid kept swelling, which led to the diagnosis. With the help of her family (her parents were now divorced, and her mom since remarried), she recovered and leapt back into her career.
